EXCLUSIVE from : Axios has obtained a leaked draft of a Trump administration bill — ordered by the president himself — that would declare America’s abandonment of fundamental World Trade Organization rules.
They named the bill the FART Act. I am not making this up. "The bill, titled the 'United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act,' would give Trump unilateral power to ignore the two most basic principles of the WTO and negotiate one-on-one with any country"
Leak: Trump to dump WTO with, and I kid you not, the Fair and Reciprocal Trade Act (FART).
“Most officials involved in the bill's drafting — with the notable exception of hardline trade adviser Peter Navarro — think the bill is unrealistic or unworkable.”
Axios has obtained a leaked draft of a Trump bill that would abandon key World Trade Organization rules. "The bill essentially provides Trump a license to raise U.S. tariffs at will, without congressional consent and international rules be damned."
Did someone get punked? Look at the acronym. United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act US FART Act
”The bill essentially provides Trump a license to raise U.S. tariffs at will, without congressional consent and international rules be damned.” -
Trump wants to abandon the rules of the World Trade Organization – giving him authority to raise tariffs without congressional consent, isolating America, and playing into Putin’s and Xi’s vision of ultra-nativist nationalism.

Folks, this is getting really serious
My head hurts so much...Trump is pushing a bill that's literally called the US FART Act. It's a terrifying over-reach of presidential power that would disintegrate decades of trade relationships with our allies and it's also called the US FART Act.
They call it the "Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act". Or, the "FART Act".🤣 This is a real thing that is happening. Once you get past that, read the text of the bill. It's terrifying. Exclusive: A leaked Trump bill to blow up the WTO #SaturdayMorning

Hoo boy read this
How do you even try and explain this? American self-destruction.
Trump’s proposed bill to leave the WTO is apparently called the “Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act” — which may be the worst acronym ever
FFS, this draft bill doesn't just seek to empower Trump--it destroys the ability for the US to make credible commitments; it seeks to make other countries do the same. This is the promotion of international anarchy

Trump wants to blow up the WTO.
Exclusive A leaked Trump bill to blow up the WTO Sounds like Trump wants to be trade dictator, with the power to raise tariffs, a.k.a. import taxes, unilaterally (screw the constitutional provisions about the House of Representatives).
Folks, I’m gonna go out on a limb and suggest that the Fair and Reciprocal Trade Act is foul, but mostly hot air.
Oh man the FART Act is real?
