    instead of making a "deal" which he is so great at (according to him) he just pulled out of the TPP.
    ------------------------------------------------------
    Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership

    On 30 December 2018, the agreement entered into force between Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and Singapore.

    On 1 January 2019, Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, and Singapore implemented a second round of tariff cuts. Japan’s second tariff cut took place on 1 April 2019.[37]

    On 14 January 2019, the agreement entered into force for Vietnam

    In January 2018, the government of the United Kingdom stated it was exploring membership of the CPTPP to stimulate exports after Brexit and has held informal discussions with several of the members.[65] The country has an overseas territory, the Pitcairn Islands, in the Pacific Ocean.[66] In October 2018, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he would welcome the United Kingdom joining the partnership post-Brexit.[67]

    On 25 January 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump in an interview announced his interest in possibly rejoining the TPP if it were a "substantially better deal" for the United States. He withdrew the U.S. from the original agreement in January 2017.[68]


    On 12 April 2018, he told the White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to look into joining the new deal.[69]

    U.S. Wheat Associates President Vince Peterson had said in December 2018 that American wheat exporters could face an “imminent collapse” in their 53% market share in Japan due to CPTPP. Peterson added, “Our competitors in Australia and Canada will now benefit from those [CPTPP] provisions, as US farmers watch helplessly.”

    The National Cattlemen's Beef Association stated that exports of beef to Japan, America’s largest export market, would be at a serious disadvantage to Australian exporters as their tariffs on exports to Japan would be cut by 27.5% during the first year of CPTPP.[70][71]

    Maybe you took too long of a nap?
    Trans-Pacific Partnership - Wikipedia

    "In January 2018 the remaining eleven countries agreed on a revised TPP, now renamed as the "Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership" (CPTPP). The agreement remains substantially the same, but contains a list of 20 "suspended provisions" that were added to the TPP at the U.S.'s insistence and that are now no longer binding. These provisions primarily relate to investment, government procurement and intellectual property"

    Why do you hate the US "worker"(as commies call them) so much? Is it because they can find happiness, while you are miserable and poor?

    Trump has to give billions of dollars to farmers because his policies have ruined their lives. Why do you hate the United States so much that you support ruining the lives of Americans across the country?

    The republican base may not know what’s going on right now but. But as trumps policies ruins their lives, they’ll figure it out.

    I am no fan of Trump but is there something new here or is this simply rehashing old stuff?

    It is out of date stuff, being rehashed, and is not even relevant.

    I never realized the poster was a female. I bet she is not the only one who has trouble identifying her gender. She should dedicate some time learning how to be an actual woman from role models like Ivanka or Melania rather than focusing all day on Trump's trade deals, as amazing as they are.
