President Trump took a few miutes during a press conference Monday to discuss “globalism,” one of the key planks of the Washington Establishment Trump has promised to fight against. Trump listed NAFTA, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, and the Paris Climate Treaty as examples of transnational groups that Joe Biden has supported that President Trump says are taking advantage of the U.S. “Biden supported NAFTA, he supported China’s entry into the World Trade Organization –two disasters. The most disastrous trade deals in history, both of them. I can’t tell you which was worse, they were both terrible,” Trump joked. And the “World Health [Organization] we got out of because we were spending $500 million, China was spending $38 million… and China controlled it!” “If they don’t shape up, we’re going to ship out,” Trump said about the groups. “We never used to win anything at the World Trade Organization, now that’s changing,” he also said. “Now all of a sudden we are winning a lot of cases. They are talking to us much differently than they used to.” Trump also complained that the WTO “treats China as a developing nation and we’re treated like a nation that is fully developed.” “We are not fully developed, as far as I’m concerned,” Trump said.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Biden supported one coldhearted globalist, betrayal after another. Biden supported NAFTA, he supported China’s entry into the World Trade Organization –two disasters. The most disastrous trade deals in history, both of them. I can’t tell you which was worse, they were both terrible. I ended much of it. I ended NAFTA. We are looking at the World Trade Organization. They have become much better, I will say that. World Health we got out of because we were spending $500 million, China was spending $38 million and China controlled it. But World Trade, we are looking at it. They have been very nice to us lately, I will say that, amazingly. We never used to win anything at the World Trade Organization, now that’s changing. Now all of a sudden we are winning a lot of cases. They are talking to us much differently than they used to. Because if they do not shape up, we are going to ship out, that is all. We are not treated fairly. China is treated as a developing nation and we’re treated like a nation that is fully developed. We are not fully developed, as far as I’m concerned. When you look at Portland and see what these Democrats are doing to our cities. Take a look at what is happening in New York and Chicago. We have Democrat-run cities, mayors that are running and governors that are running states so badly, and mayors running cities so badly. It is very sad. It is Democrat-run, everyone that I see. I guess we can probably find one or two that are not, but so far I haven’t been able to. If you look at Biden, he supported TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which would have been a disaster. By the way, many plants are being built right now in Michigan, just like I said. They are being built in Ohio, being built in South Carolina, North Carolina. They are being built all over and expanded at a level we have never seen before. As I said to Japan and Germany, and others, “Sorry, you have to come here and build plants, otherwise we are going to have to make it very tough on you with tariffs.” We got out of the horrible Paris Climate Accord (that [Biden] will go back into because, you know, it sounds wonderful. It is a disaster for this country. They are basically taking away your wealth. The other countries don’t have to adhere to it. China doesn’t kick in until 2030. We had very high standards. We would’ve have had to close 25% of our businesses in order to qualify under this ridiculous Paris Climate Accord. Sounds good, it was very bad.
