President Trump kept at least one big campaign promise for the American workers, he vowed to pull the United States out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and he did just that! Moving his campaign words into action, Trump signed an executive order on Monday that formally withdrew the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. It’s about America FIRST!
Pretty AMAZING! Talk about a quick 180 turn away from Obama’s administration and policies. THIS is EXACTLY what America needs. President Trump just turned America’s back on globalism and opened her arms on American jobs and growing the economy!
H/T I Have The Truth:
Although it has been talked about before that this would be something he was planning on doing, the fact that is was done so swiftly and efficiently this soon after he’s become President, is just incredible!
It was a promise that he made several times on the campaign trail…and a promise he kept. He has told us that this is new era for America and her people. She will no longer be exploited by foreign countries through their unfair trade deals…she is no longer one to be pushed around.
Trump says, that the world’s reliance on the free ride they have been getting from the United States is over. It’s time for them to become self-reliant or learn how to do business as it should be done.
“For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military,” he said.
“One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind.”
“We’re going to stop the ridiculous trade deals that have taken everybody out of our country and taken companies out of our country, and it’s going to be reversed,” Mr. Trump told the labor leaders, including some representing ironworkers and sheet metal workers. “Companies that left are going to come back to our country, and they’re going to hire a lot of people.”
How did the rest of the world respond?:
World capitals are in shock. The leaders of Japan and Great Britain will meet with President Trump in the coming weeks. Japan is particularly nervous about America’s new stance.
China responded that “cooperation also demands reciprocal flexibility instead of a beggar-thy-neighbor mentality.”
In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel yesterday acknowledged that there were differences of opinion but said that she would work to arrive at compromises with Trump on issues like trade and military spending.
One thing’s certain, President Trump is already keeping to his campaign promises…to ‘Make America Great Again’. He promised American voters – more jobs and that’s just what America is going to get – more jobs and a stronger economy.
Pretty AMAZING that on his first Monday in office President Trump signed an executive order that killed Obama’s TPP. Trump believes TPP is NOT in America’s best interest. Trump also plans to reduce Obama’s regulations that have been our killing our economy by 75%.
President Trump has already done more in his first 2 days in office to improve America’s economy, than President Obama ever did in his entire 8 years.
Trump said he plans to reduce corporate tax rates from the current 35 percent to as low as 15 percent and roll back federal regulations that impede business growth. Besides withdrawing the US from the TPP, Trump has already issued a federal employment hiring freeze, and reinstated a GOP-backed policy regarding foreign aid and abortion funding.
Less government. Less regulation. Less taxes. Sounds like a great start, President Trump. Next up, the Keystone and Dakota pipelines. Jobs. Jobs. And more jobs!
