USA Pulling Out Of Arms Treaty

Donald Trump has decided to pull USA out of the UN Arms Trade Treaty. The Arms Trade Treaty is an international treaty that regulates the import export in countries of conventional weapons. USA, being the no.1 weapons exporter, claimed that it’s 30.3 billion dollar market is being restrained due to this Treaty. USA will now be joining Syria, Iran and North Korea as non signatories. This treaty is meant to protect the common people from weapons. 101 countries have formally joined it, while 29 countries have signed but are yet to formally join.

This treaty was originally signed by President Barack Obama in 2013, much to the dismay of NRA and several conservative groups.
