The new US administration of President Donald Trump has said its trade strategy to protect American jobs would start with withdrawal from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact.

A White House statement issued soon after Mr Trump’s inauguration said the United States would also “crack down on those nations that violate trade agreements and harm American workers in the process”.

The statement said Mr Trump was committed to renegotiating another trade deal, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was signed in 1994 by the United States, Canada and Mexico.

“For too long, Americans have been forced to accept trade deals that put the interests of insiders and the Washington elite over the hard-working men and women of this country,” it said.

“As a result, blue-collar towns and cities have watched their factories close and good-paying jobs move overseas, while Americans face a mounting trade deficit and a devastated manufacturing base.”

The statement said “tough and fair agreements” on trade could be used to grow the US economy and return millions of jobs to America.

If NAFTA partners refused to give American workers a fair deal in a renegotiated agreement, “the President will give notice of the United States’ intent to withdraw from NAFTA”, the statement added.

The TPP, which the United States signed but has not ratified, had been the main economic pillar of the Obama administration’s “pivot” to the Asia-Pacific region in the face of a fast-rising China.

  5. So according to this article the TPP was never law, it was tabled for Senate to ratify. The Trump administration is not onboard with TPP, and as long as Congress is onboard with the new administration, which I have no doubts to the contrary, then TPP is dead, as you said seeker.

  7. Trump had called for the resolution to be vetoed.”
