On January 23, 2017 President Donald Trump made clear that the United States is no longer pursuing the horrific trade pact known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). In an Executive Order, Trump officially abandoned and disbanded the TPP which the Obama administration, Congressional hacks, Wall Street, and major corporations had worked for eight years to solidify.
In so doing, Trump has moved forward with a policy that we have agitated for since the creation of the TPP. Only a few days into his administration, Trump has met one of demands a stated in the article platform "A Real New Deal For America - 43 Points."
We congratulate President Trump on his decision to abandon the TPP. We also encourage him to move forward in abandoning NAFTA, CAFTA, GATT, and the various bilateral Chinese trade agreements that have done so much damage to the American jobs market. We also encourage him to consider removing the United States from the World Trade Organization.
We must, as Americans, now realize that the fight is nowhere near being over. But we have made progress. We must continue to push for an end to "Free Trade" and for the implementation of the rest of our demands.
