Recently, on the White House website, the new administration has laid out the main issues it is planning to address soon.
One of these issues in particular, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership [TPP] is front and center among the changes supposedly planned.
The TPP deal has been the recipient of heavy backlash, and with good reason. Not only was the deal negotiated in secret, as some of you might know, but it would also have crippling effects on the US economy due to enormous job loss, as well as other reasons.
Also of note is the fact that North American Free Trade Agreement [NAFTA] is going to be renegotiated, if possible, and for the very same reasons.
Because of this, and additional reasons, the new administration’s strategy is to start:
“…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.”[Bold Emphasis Added]
Time will tell whether this plan to remove the TPP and renegotiate NAFTA will take place.
One thing to note though is that, to bring these issues to the fore and not follow through will be great loss of political capital.
Still, actions mean louder than words, and now we will see where the winds will take us.
