President Donald Trump has threatened to withdraw the US from the World Trade Organization if the body fails to change the way it treats America. “If they don’t shape up, I would withdraw from the WTO,” Mr Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg News. The WTO was established to provide rules for global trade and resolve disputes between countries. But Mr Trump, who has been pushing protectionist policies, says the US is treated unfairly by the body.
