Donald Trump signs withdrawal from TPP

He really is a Chump

US President Donald Trump has asked trade officials to explore the possibility of the United States re-joining negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, after he pulled out last year as part of his “America first” agenda.
Key points:

  • Mr Trump made the comments to farm-state politicians in a White House meeting
  • US farmers would get better access to overseas markets under the TPP
  • Australia played a key role in resurrecting the trade pact earlier this year

Australia and a group of 10 other nations resurrected the trade agreement earlier this year, despite Mr Trump’s decision to abandon the deal.
