Threatens move if membership in WTO interferes with plan to penalize companies that move American production offshore

 

Toughening immigration checks for the French and Germans, questioning NATO obligations and hinting at an exit from the World Trade Organization: Donald Trump cast further doubt Sunday on US alliances and commitments around the world.

In his first wide-ranging interview since he was crowned the Republican Party's White House nominee, the billionaire and political novice spelled out his stance on a slew of foreign policy, international trade and national security issues.

If he wins in November, he told NBC's "Meet the Press," France and other nations hit by recent terror attacks would be subjected to "extreme" immigration checks as a deterrent to attacks on US soil.

 

Asked, in relation to the British vote to leave the European Union, whether a fractured Europe was good for America, Trump equivocated.

 

"No, no -- but we're spending a lot of money in Europe," he said. "Don't forget, Europe got together, why primarily did they get together? To beat the United States when it comes to making money. In other words, on trade.

 

"Look at Airbus," he said. "They got together, all of these countries got together so they could beat the United States. Okay?"

Trump, who has already threatened to renegotiate or rip up the North American Free Trade Agreement, went on to suggest that the United States could pull out of the World Trade Organization under his presidency.

 

In the interview, he put forward a plan for punitive import taxes of up to 30 percent on firms that move manufacturing activities abroad, citing NAFTA partner Mexico as an example.

Trouble for Trump is that most big businesses in the US want the current trading arrangements. They want to get their products made cheaply in Asia to maximise their profits. US gains from these companies paying tax. If Trump even manages to get both houses in the US to vote for his changes, companies will vote with their feet. Some US companies have already offshored their headquarters to places like Ireland so they can pay less tax.

We could do with some help from you.
