    I am reminded of something that wise philosopher Tyrion Lannister once said.


    "We've had vicious kings and we've had idiot kings, but l don't know if we've ever been cursed with a vicious idiot for a king."


    There is no reason for us to withdraw from the WTO. Trump is just a vicious idiot.
    Thanks from Lunchboxxy and BigLeRoy

    I recently read that 86% of the cases that the U.S. has taken to the WTO have been decided in OUR favor.

    From the Axios AM Newsletter:

    The “Economic Report of the President” for 2018, which bears Trump’s signature on Page 11, states: “[T]he United States has won 85.7 percent of the cases it has initiated before the WTO since 1995, compared with a global average of 84.4 percent. In contrast, China’s success rate is just 66.7 percent.”

    Those who get to slice the pie
    Give themselves bigger pieces!
    We've seen this down through history;
    The pattern never ceases!

    It's human nature, I suppose,
    To want more and more and more;
    But it'd be nice to get some crumbs
    For those getting kicked out the door!
