CHICAGO, Sept 8 - President Donald Trump today said he wants to stop the subsidies that growing economies like India and China have been receiving as he wants the US, which he considers as a �developing nation�, to grow faster than anybody.
Addressing a fund-raiser event in the Fargo city of North Dakota, he also accused the World Trade Organization (WTO) of allowing China to become a �great economic power�.
�We have some of these countries that are considered growing economies. Some countries that have not matured enough yet, so we are paying them subsidies. Whole thing is crazy. Like India, like China, like others we say, �oh, they�re growing actually�,� Trump said. He said that they call themselves developing nations and �under that category they get subsidies�.
�We have to pay them money. This whole thing is crazy, but we�re going to stop it. We�re going to stop it. We have stopped it. We are a developing nation, too, OK? We are. As far as I�m concerned, we are a developing nation. I want to be put down in that category because we are growing, too. We are going to grow faster than anybody,� he said. � PTI
