President Donald Trump has insisted that the United States
(US) was not a fully developed country.
Trump disclosed this at a news conference outside the White
House on Monday that coincided with the US Labour Day
He explained that the World Trade Organisation (WTO) treats the U.S “as a nation that is fully developed” and China as a.developing nation.
Trump also cited the U.S-China trade agreement signed by the Barack Obama administration under WTO conventions,
describing it as one of the most disastrous trade deals in
history, NAN reports.
“We aren’t fully developed, as far as I’m concerned,” he said.
“China did not play by the rules. One of the reasons WTO is
so bad is because China did not play by the rules.
“We did, but their rules were easier because they are
considered a developing nation.
“So, their standards are much lower, but even at that, they did not play by the rules.”
He added: “But China was taking our money to build their
military. You see, they’re building a very powerful military.
