Donald Trumpís government published on Monday (10) a rule that removes Brazil from the list of nations considered to be developing, and that gave the country certain trade privileges.

In addition to Brazil, 18 other countries were affected, such as Argentina, India, and Colombia, which can now be targeted by the USA if it proves that they subsidize products above a specified ceiling, for example.

The main objective of the Trump administration, according to a note, is to reduce the number of developing countries that could receive special treatment without being affected by barriers against their products.

The American government mainly wants to impact China, an Asian powerhouse with which he has been fighting a trade war for years and which also presents itself at the WTO (World Trade Organization) as a developing country.

3. Goodness, does he suspect corruption?

Maybe something along the lines of "Brazil, you are as developed as you're ever going to get" if you don't hang with me? What favor did the madman require of the other? Hmmmm....Some things we may never know. Make of it what you will wherever hidden or unpreserved records can exist...
