Which makes me wonder why the current Administration bothered to reverse the policy of the previous Administration at all.
Posturing - there is some PR benefit to publicly voicing support for what others believe is a 'good cause' rather than being forthright and saying you oppose it.

Whether an Administration voices official support or opposition to an arms trade treaty, the US government will not join in any treaty that substantially endangers "the estimated $70 billion of international trade in conventional weapons each year."
