Donald Trump to Withdraw From TPP on Day One

In a recent video address posted to Facebook earlier this evening, President-Elect Trump updated the American people on his agenda for his first 100 days in office. “My agenda will be based on a simple core principle: putting America first,” said Trump.


One of the lynchpins of his campaign was to renegotiate or withdraw from crony trade deals that benefit foreign countries more than our own. Among these was the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Trump said in the video, “On trade, I am going to issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country. Instead, we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back onto American shores.”

Perhaps the most exciting part of his agenda is his plan to slash regulations. “On regulation, I will formulate a rule which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated. So important.”
