Washington (AP) President Donald Trump is making a serious play to keep his promise to “drain the swamp” of lobbyists, multinational corporations and wealthy individuals at the heart of U.N. diplomacy.
In an interview with Axios on Tuesday, Trump said he is planning to make a major effort to keep global organizations, including the United Nations, and the global economy afloat, a theme he repeated in the interview.
He said he wants to focus on “diversifying” U.A.E. and other multilateral agencies, while “diving in” on U.K. negotiations.
Trump has pledged to use his executive powers to end trade pacts with countries like Mexico, China and South Korea, saying he wants more control over the rules of the global economic system.
He also wants to slash U.T.O. rules and regulations and roll back Obama-era policies that he says have damaged the U-S.-China relationship.
He has said he would replace the U.-Korea trade deal with a new one with a “fair” trade deal that would include tariffs on U-T.
Trump also said he will make a big push for “economic patriotism” to combat rising inequality, saying his administration is planning an executive order to crack down on illegal immigrants and other criminals.
He has also said his administration will end the trade war on China, which he says has hurt U.U.S.-Chinese relations.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday.
On Monday, Trump signed an executive action that allows the Treasury Department to waive U.D.N.-imposed export controls on U.-T.os that the agency has long imposed on UBS and other large corporations.
The administration is expected to announce in the coming weeks that it will roll back U.P.A.-imposed U.B.
N rules that require U.F.O.-certified ships to be fully staffed and equipped to support U.O.’s humanitarian and disaster relief efforts.
The move comes amid a series of setbacks for Trump’s campaign to keep U.R.O., or the United States Export-Import Bank, open.
The bank has helped U.s. businesses finance U.
Os projects, including military and security projects.
