Trump says US to pull out of Trans-Pacific Partnership 'on day one'
US President-elect Donald Trump has announced plans to withdraw the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal the day he takes office, DW.
President-elect Trump released a video listing actions he would take on his first day in office on January 20, including his announcement of a full withdrawal of the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership by presidential executive order.
"I've asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs," the US president-elect said in a video message outlining priorities for his first 100 days.
"On trade, I am going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country," he said.
"Instead, we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back onto American shores."
