Promise Fulfilled: President Trump Signs Executive Order Withdrawing From TPP…

Well, it’s officially official.  A people’s president who keeps campaign promises.  TPP is dead, and Commerce Secretary nominee Wilbur Ross, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and the head of the White House Trade Council, Peter Navarro, are expected to lead negotiations on new bi-lateral trade agreements.

GOPe republicans will respond with angst, and traditional liberal democrats are stuck because the majority of their constituents, and labor unions, support Trump’s position.

WASHINGTON DC – President Trump signed an executive order on Monday announcing his plan to withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.

The order fulfills Trump’s campaign promise to abandon the Pacific Rim trade pact early in his administration.

“We’ve been talking about this for a long time,” Trump said after signing the order in the Oval Office, adding that leaving the 12-nation pact is a “great thing for the American worker.”

The president also signed two other executive actions: one that places a hiring freeze on non-military federal workers and another that cuts off federal funding for foreign organizations that provide abortions.  (read more)

Additionally, President Trump meets with business leaders:   “Day One” of his presidency by meeting with business leaders in the White House. Trump said Monday there will “be advantages” to companies that make their products in the United States and suggested he will impose a “substantial border tax” on foreign goods entering the country.

The president also repeated a campaign promise to cut regulations “by 75 percent, maybe more.” Trump hosted the breakfast with about a dozen leaders in the Roosevelt Room. Among those in attendance were Kevin Plank of Under Armour, Elon Musk of Tesla, Marilyn Hewson of Lockheed Martin and Mario Longhi of US Steel. Trump suggested he wanted to hold these meetings quarterly.

    And, pre- and post-Spicer the Faux cheerleaders talked up the tax returns and attendance numbers with vigor.

    Dang. Trump kills the bill and simultaneously wins over millions of union votes. Ifthere’s any flies on Trump, they’re paying rent.

    Sundance,

    Of equal import as the content of this video is the fact that it exists.

    This is President Trump doing real work, making news and delivering the news at the same time–completely bypassing the filtering spin of the opposition media.

    Where obummer had his existing mms media organs and the incompetent Bush was at loggerheads with those same twits, Bannon is essentially creating Breitbart-Whitehouse in real time.

    You are the brains, so I will leave it to you to anticipate what/where Bannon will do next.

    Me? I am relishing this brand new iteration of American self-governance. It is new, open , exciting and is garnering enormous mindshare and buy-in.

    Grace and peace

  13. When Trump flushed that TPP down the toilet, he won a battle for the entire world. TPP enthusiasts, as he pointed did not know what was in that 5600-pages nightmare. But more freedom it wasn’t, I sure of it.
