Trump denied he is planning to withdraw the United States from the World Trade Organization. They have been treating us very badly for many, many years and that's why we were at a big disadvantage with the WTO.

Over 40 WTO members, including the 28 countries of the European Union - warned that the USA action could seriously disrupt the world market and threaten the WTO system, given the importance of cars to world trade.

China, Canada, Switzerland, Norway, Turkey, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Venezuela, Singapore, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Qatar, Thailand and India all echoed the same concerns and said they doubted the USA tariffs were in line with WTO rules.

During the meeting with Rutte, Trump said he was "very close" to reaching a number of trade deals, describing them as "fair trade deals for our taxpayers, and for our workers and for our farmers".

According to Axios, Trump was briefed on the bill in May, but it hasn't yet been reviewed by key economic advisers.

The European Commission, the EU executive body that handles trade for the bloc, said on Monday it was trying to convince its US counterparts that imposing such tariffs would be a mistake.

The proposed "United States Fair and Reciprocal Trade Act" would give the president unilateral power to renegotiate with individual countries or apply tariffs, bypassing worldwide WTO rules for collective negotiation.

Here, we are talking about the millions of businesses - large and small - that use the global trading system every day to exchange their goods and services, creating value for local economies and spreading prosperity more widely. But if the talks fail, the affected party has 60 days to form a WTO arbitration committee. The White House emphasized that FART is far from complete.

In an interview with CNBC, one of the founders of Hamilton Place Strategies, Tony Fratto, said that the picture is clear: "We are definitely in a trade war". And China and other countries have used the WTO to their own advantage. He has taken extensive part in advocacy and organizing in the pro-labor, migrant justice and police accountability movements of Southern California and the state's Central Coast.
