TPP

The fledgling Trump administration has withdrawn the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a so-called trade deal that was kind of hobbling along on the brink of death, anyway.

Though Obama spent all last year and most of his major-policy effort stumping for the TPP it never really looked like it would have overwhelming support in Congress. After Trump won on a message of the evils of trade deals it was really, really dead.

A weird win for workers, but hey, still a win.

    Yes, a win. But I’m sure it won’t take long for them to negate any potential benefit. Glad to see NO COUNTRY FOR POOR MEN back!
