The “President’s Council for Sustainable Development” has been working feverishly the last 27 years along with the career civil servants and diplomats in the government. It has been understood by these career civil servants (Deep State) that the United States should be disadvantaged in trade deals because we are too successful and it isn’t fair. It has been understood that the United States should pay the bulk of the NATO budget and UN budget. This is all part of the redistribution of wealth. And these policies have transcended each administration.
