Trump Wants to Rejoin Trans-Pacific Partnership
President Donald Trump says he wants to rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the trade deal he pulled the U.S. from after calling it a fraud.
Republican senators told reporters Trump is going to direct National Economic Council Chairman Larry Kudlow and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to look into re-entering the TPP negotiations.
The move comes in the midst of rising tensions over trade between the U.S. and China, and re-entering the TPP may help with negotiations.
The TPP is a trade agreement between Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam and the United States.
