The irony of US-led multilateral institutions – WTO, World Bank, etc – is even dominance isn’t enough! It’s the “rules-based international order,” folks! They make the rules and we all just follow orders, thank you very much. It’s their world, and we’re just lucky to live in it. pic.twitter.com/6mwbXbZ4Fc
