    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Monday that the United States could pull out of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), if it opposed his taxation initiatives.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday night Trump formally accepted Republican party’s nomination and would campaign for the next four months against Democratic nominee. The US presidential election will take place on Tuesday, November 8.

    "Doesn’t matter. Then we’re going renegotiate or we're going to pull out. These trade deals are a disaster… World Trade Organization is a disaster," he said in an interview with NBC broadcaster, commenting on the objection that WTO would not allow his plans to impose taxes on firms that moved manufacturing activities abroad.
