A laudable sentiment unreported (except here) was expressed by President Trump, on June 1.
It is that the US would be far better off if it negotiated bilateral trade agreements, instead of multilateral deals. Of course, “county-on-country” agreements, as the president put it, are preferable to the multilateral maze we currently negotiate.
If you can’t have free trade—and we don’t!—smaller and less unwieldy agreements are preferable.
If you find a quote, please send it along. The rule is that the malpracticing media neglect or twist everything substantive Trump does or says.
