    During an interview aired on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on Wednesday, President Donald Trump told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs the World Trade Organization (WTO) was set up to benefit everyone but the United States.

    “They have taken advantage of this country like you wouldn't believe,” Trump said before stating the U.S. has lost “almost all of the lawsuits” brought to the WTO.

    “It's set up,” Trump said, after noting the U.S. had fewer judges in the WTO than other countries did. “It was set up for the benefit of taking advantage of the United States.”

    Trump went on to wonder why people opposed his intention to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which he has routinely criticized as a terrible deal for the U.S.

    “I tell good people,” Trump said without naming anyone in particular.

    Those people, Trump suggested, were opposed to his intended reforms for NAFTA.
