Trump Won't Rejoin Renegotiated TPP

Trump Won't Rejoin Renegotiated TPP

This comes after Mr Trump made a point a year ago of pulling out of TPP talks, saying he preferred an "America first" policy.

"We will have to be convinced that it's worth our while". I think it's better for our country. "I don't think he is", added Kudlow.

Trump first disclosed his request last week to a group of lawmakers at a White House meeting on trade.

"I don't want to go back into TPP", Mr. Trump said at a press conference. "Too many contingencies and no way to get out if it doesn't work". The president, who abandoned the 12-nation deal days after entering the White House past year, now believes that two-country agreements are "far more efficient" and better for American workers.

Meanwhile, Trump continued with a shot at the World Trade Organization, which he said was "bad" to the United States.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had warned America if they wanted back in the agreement would have to be renegotiated, as White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow claimed the United States was yet to be convinced of the merits of joining the TPP. Mr. Trump made the United States' exit from the trade deal one of the first items on his to-do list after taking office. The coalition signed a revised version of the trade deal, suspending almost two dozen of the original provisions, this past March.

"What I really prefer is negotiating a one-on-one deal with Japan". US Vice President Mike Pence attended in his stead.

With South Korea, Thailand, and Indonesia also having shown "strong interest" in the TPP, Turnbull said he is hopeful that other nations will additionally join the trade pact in future.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull had said at the time that while he would encourage the U.S. to rejoin the TPP, he didn't see "any prospect of that".

In statements reported by Reuters, Mexican Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo suggested that he may be meeting with his NAFTA counterparts, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, on 19 April in Washington, following on technical meetings held among negotiators in recent days.

President Martín Vizcarra has claimed that US leaders want back in on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) a little more than a year after backing out of the trade agreement.
