Interviewed on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Trump said he would slap punitive taxes on firms that moved manufacturing activities abroad, citing Mexico as an example.

When show host Chuck Todd objected that such plans would be challenged at the WTO, he responded:

“Doesn’t matter. We’ll renegotiate or pull out. These trade deals are a disaster, Chuck. World Trade Organization is a disaster.”
