Donald Trump Opposes Korea FTA, Supports Fair Trade

Today on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Donald Trump launched into a tirade about the Korea FTA, unprompted.

“Have you seen what’s happened recently with the trade pact with South Korea?” said Trump. “They ask us to sign something that only a moron would sign.”Donald Trump on Morning Joe

Trump went on to say, “I think that fair trade is a much better word than ‘free trade.’ I listen to these people saying, ‘Oh, that’s going to hurt free trade.’ What’s ‘free trade’ when a country has imbalances of hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars…?”

We think The Donald has a clear message to USTR: Fix the deal, or YOU’RE FIRED!
