White House Announces Exit from TTP, Warns of Possible Exit from NAFTA

by Sergey Gladysh, The Duran:

The new White House website went live shortly after Donald Trump’s inauguration, outlining the administration’s priorities and revealing new policy details.

Along with a new president comes a new White House website, complete with new information on the administration, its plans, and daily activities. As Donald Trump’s White House website went live shortly after the inauguration, some official policy details have been released.

For instance, here the list of Trump administration’s top issues:

America First Energy Plan
America First Foreign Policy
Bringing Back Jobs And Growth
Making Our Military Strong Again
Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community
Trade Deals Working For All Americans

The section on trade is particularly interesting, as it confirms Trump’s previously stated intentions to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and outlines the possibility of a withdrawal from NAFTA if partners to that agreement refuse a renegotiation.

Here is the what the text on trade reads:

This strategy starts by withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and making certain that any new trade deals are in the interests of American workers. President Trump is committed to renegotiating NAFTA. If our partners refuse a renegotiation that gives American workers a fair deal, then the President will give notice of the United States’ intent to withdraw from NAFTA.

In addition to rejecting and reworking failed trade deals, the United States will crack down on those nations that violate trade agreements and harm American workers in the process. The President will direct the Commerce Secretary to identify all trade violations and to use every tool at the federal government’s disposal to end these abuses.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a trade agreement among twelve of the Pacific Rim countries, which excludes China. The finalized proposal was signed on February 4, 2016, in Auckland, New Zealand, concluding seven years of negotiations. The agreement was championed by former US President Barack Obama. It was negotiated in secret and heavily criticized for violating international law and threatening to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe, rewriting international rules on its enforcement.

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a trilateral agreement between Mexico, the US and Canada which was signed by former US President Bill Clinton in 1994.

While no details are yet available regarding the exact date of withdrawal from the TTP or the start of the renegotiations on NAFTA, one thing is clear, Donald Trump intends on fulfilling his campaign promises.

    Moving quickly in the right direction for the American people.

    At least get it right. It is TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) NOT TTP as written. And not to be confused with TTIP, the analogous “trade” deal with Europe, which has already been rejected by the Europeans. Neither of these deals is about trade but about extending powers of the Corporatocracy and the fascist State. Good riddance to both.

      Amen to that. Trump will not settle for crap like that being passed on his watch. He’s just not the settling kind. His job is to make OTHER PEOPLE settle for what HE wants. Man, this is refreshing!

    “Making Our Military Strong Again
    Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community”

    Which includes standing up for our vets and making sure that they get the care that they need and deserve. The days of sending our young men off to war and then ignoring them when they are injured are over… and it’s about effing time.
