Trump is considering rejoining the trans-Pacific trade pact

Trump is hailed by most Significant group Right after military action

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse says Trump said during a White House meeting with Midwest governors and lawmakers that he had "deputized" USA trade representative Robert Lighthizer and economic adviser Larry Kudlow to look into the US rejoining the TPP.

In his remarks on Thursday, Trump cited a speech by Chinese President Xi Jinping that the USA president interprets as a signal China is about to open its markets to more US goods.

"The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another disaster, done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country", Trump said in June 2016.

The US president said: "Larry, go get it done", while instructing the official, Sasse told reporters.

After the United States defected from the TPP, other members of the trade deal went ahead with it.

Eleven countries signed the agreement last month. The administration is also expected to release a separate list for the additional proposed tariffs covering $100 billion in imports from China.


"Last year, the president kept his promise to end the TPP deal negotiated by the Obama Administration because it was unfair to American workers and farmers", the White House said in a statement. As a newly minted president, he pulled the USA out of the 12-nation trade deal, proclaiming the move was "a great thing for the American worker".

The EPA now bans the 15-percent blend, called E15, during the summer because of concerns that it contributes to smog on hot days.

An array of business executives are expressing alarm to federal lawmakers Thursday about the impact that tariffs will have on their business.

China has countered by announcing its own set of tariffs on USA products. "Increased economic engagement with the 11 nations now in TPP has the potential to substantially improve the competitiveness of USA businesses, support millions of U.S.jobs, increase US exports, increase wages, fully unleash America's energy potential, and benefit consumers". The U.S. has accused China of unfairly subsidizing targeted sectors and forcing foreign companies to transfer technology in areas like robotics, aerospace and artificial intelligence.

That letter was ignored, and in March, 11 countries from across the Pacific, excluding China, signed the agreement which will create a new single market that represents 40 percent of the global economic output.
