US sparks ‘shameful attacks’ against International Criminal Court

quote [ The row between the Trump White House and the International Criminal Court (ICC) has worsened after a fresh exchange of insults, with US secretary of state Mike Pompeo describing the court as “a nakedly political body” – and global supporters demanding he stop his “shameful attacks”. ]

I don't know if this issue holds merit. I just want to overcome the under-reported aspect of this story so we can better evaluate its implications.

Since when has the US given a shit about what the ICC thinks?

ASPA authorizes the U.S. president to use "all means necessary and appropriate to bring about the release of any U.S. or allied personnel being detained or imprisoned by, on behalf of, or at the request of the International Criminal Court". This authorization has led the act to be nicknamed the "Hague Invasion Act".[3][4]
