The Art of the Repeal – President Trump showed America last week he plans to follow through on promises to take a more aggressive stance against foreign competitors as part of his “America First” approach.
He deleted TPP.
The President formally abandoned the ambitious, 12 nation Trans Pacific Partnership brokered by Obama.
Even those who do not understand TPP understand that Obama ALWAYS put America last and often our enemies first so EVERYONE knew this would most likely be a catastrophe.
The New York Times reported:
Although the TransPacific Partnership had not been approved by Congress, Mr. Trump’s decision to withdraw not only doomed former President Barack Obama’s signature trade achievement, but also carried broad geopolitical implications in a fast growing region. The deal, which was to link a dozen nations from Canada and Chile to Australia and Japan in a complex web of trade rules, was sold as a way to permanently tie the United States to East Asia and create an economic bulwark against a rising China.
Instead, Mr. Trump said American workers would be protected against competition from low wage countries like Vietnam and Malaysia, also parties to the deal.
Repeal ObamaCare and repeal TPP. Repeal all of Obama’s stupid executive orders that were designed to damage America!
Obama spent a lot of time doing things that were un-Constitutional. He made a fatal flaw, however.
Much of what he did, because he went around normal channels like Congress…. made what he did very easy to repeal! President Trump has already undone much of what Obama did and his first week is not even over yet!
There is still a lot of work to do, but we have a great start. The American people will grow confident again as our economy grows, we begin to beat ISIS, and they see the nasty foot of the federal government lifted from the neck of the healthcare system.
Thank you Obama for making it so easy to repeal you! Bwahahahaha!
Donald Trump has promised to pull the US out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal on his very first day in office. The TPP was signed by 12 countries which together cover 40% of the world’s economy.
