World Trade Organization spokesman Keith Rockwell told Bloomberg's Bryce Baschuk that the organization was unaware of President Trump's desire to withdraw the U.S. from the WTO, as Axios' Jonathan Swan reported Friday.

"We have not heard anyone express this to us at any level of the U.S. government. We won’t speculate on anything we don’t know anything about.”
