Trump Fulfills One Of His Campaign Promises

By Ikenga Chronicles January 24, 2017

US President Donald Trump has fulfilled one of his campaign promises by yanking the United States out of a major Pacific trade deal on Monday.

Trump came to office promising to cut existing trade pacts and reclaim manufacturing jobs lost overseas. He also vowed to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada.

On Monday, he said he had “terminated” the Trans-Pacific Partnership — a trade deal binding the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, Vietnam and seven other allies against growing Chinese economic clout. After signing an executive order terminating it, Trump said he would be “going back to those countries one-on-one” to find terms more favorable to the United States.

“We are going to have trade but we are going to have one-on-one” he said.

“And if somebody misbehaves, we are going to send a letter of termination — 30 days and they’ll either straighten it out or we are gone.’’
