El candidato presidencial republicano, Donald Trump, amenazó este domingo con sacar a Estados Unidos de la Organización Mundial del Comercio (OMC), a la que calificó como “un desastre”.
El magnate expuso que, de llegar a la Presidencia y si no le dejan imponer aranceles discrecionalmente a diferentes países y compañías, consideraría la salida de Estados Unidos de la OMC, el único organismo que regula el comercio a nivel global.
“Vamos a renegociar o nos vamos”, dijo entrevistado en el programa “Meet the Press”, de la cadena NBC. “Ustedes saben, la OMC es un desastre”.
“Si creen que van a despedir a toda su gente, mover su planta de producción a México, construir aparatos de aire acondicionado y pensar que van a vender esos aparatos de aire acondicionado en los Estados Unidos, entonces tendrán que pagar un impuesto”, comentó.

What kind of tax are you thinking?
It could be 25 percent. It could be 35 percent. It could be 15 percent. I haven’t determined. And it could be different for different companies. We have been working on trying to stop this government, because we don’t know what we’re doing. And not only Obama, they’ve been trying to stop this from before Obama. But they don’t know. You know, they’ve done, they’ve tried lower interest loans, they’ve tried zero interest loans, these guys–
Well, some of these things aren’t going to get through the World Trade Organization. There’s–
It doesn’t matter. Then we’re going to renegotiate or we’re going to pull out. These trade deals are a disaster, Chuck. World Trade Organization is a disaster.
