Oops! Now Trump Wants to Get Back Into the TPP, After Burning Our Partners All Over the World
Here’s some news about which I can’t even: Trump weighs rejoining Trans-Pacific Partnership amid trade dispute with China.
President Trump told top administration officials Thursday to look at rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a major shift on the sprawling multination trade pact he rejected just days after taking office.
Trump gave the new orders to U.S. Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow during a meeting with lawmakers and governors in the White House Cabinet Room Thursday, according to several GOP senators in attendance.
Trump then told Lighthizer and Kudlow to “take a look at getting us back into that agreement, on our terms of course,” Thune said. “He was very I would say bullish about that.”
“On our terms, of course!”
