On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that he doesn't "like" the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade pact, which he withdrew the United States from soon after taking office. Bilateral deals are more efficient, profitiable and better for OUR workers.
Former Undersecretary of State Bob Hormats said on Tuesday that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was never intended to contain China, but meant to establish rules that were conducive to USA market conditions. According to Obama, this would put millions of jobs across the United States at risk.
