International, multilateral organizations are not going to determine American policy, White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow told reporters at a press briefing organized to preview President Trumps trip to Canada for the G-7.
The comments paint an unyielding stance on trade as the president prepares to meet with leaders from Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

Merkel just crapped her Depends.
Nice to see the globalist slobs here & abroad back on their heels for a change.

And they darn well better stand when our national anthem is played.
HOORAY Larry Kudlow
HOORAY President Donald J. Trump
Very few voices against the WTO at the time this monstrosity passed.
Accdg to Kudlow, we are now the fastest growing economy in the world. Who says tariffs dont work?
Pull out of the WTO then.
