In an unprecedented move for a politician, President Trump pulled the US out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership after running a campaign to kill the globalist “trade deal.”
Trump signed an executive order to withdraw from the TPP on Monday, stating “it’s a great thing for the American worker, what we just did.”
While the order is a formality – the Senate has not yet ratified the TPP – it effectively kills the treaty’s chances for approval.
Public outrage over the TPP began brewing after both Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) blasted the treaty as harmful to both American workers and labor abroad.
In fact, former President Obama quietly removed an anti-slavery provision from the TPP which would have otherwise prevented countries that engage in slavery, such as Malaysia, from taking part in major trade deals with the U.S.
