Trump stated in late November that the first thing he would do on his first day in office would be to pull out of the TPP. The TPP was expected to send more US jobs offshore and another major criticism is that the:
TPP will protect and guarantee profits for multinational corporations, at our expense. It gives corporations special rights to challenge U.S. laws or regulations that threaten the corporation’s “future expected profits.” These challenges are heard in an overseas secret tribunal, not accountable to any government.
Getting out of the TPP can’t come soon enough.
