This past Thursday, US Senator Josh Hawley introduced a joint resolution to withdraw the US from the World Trade Organization.

The World Trade Organization was established in 1994 and under the agreement establishing the WTO – Congress receives a report every 5 years on the effects of the WTO on the US economy and enables a vehicle for Congress to revoke the US’ participation in the WTO.

In the joint resolution by Senator Hawley, Hawley writes the coronavirus pandemic has shown China’s use of the WTO to benefit themselves and other elites around the world at the expense of the US.
