Love him or hate him, trump is at least right now living up to his promise to champion the working class.

The unions and labor begged obama not to sign the trade deal. He obviously ignored them all because he did sign it. Labor experts said this trade deal would just as devestating as clintons nafta.
Killing this trade deal is good for american workers


President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday withdrawing from the legacy trade agreement former President Barack Obama worked on for years.
Trump withdrew (https://twitter.com/AP/status/823573493132525568) from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), fulfilling a campaign promise. The withdrawal was among the first orders of the day.
The Trump administration intends to pursue “trade deals working for all Americans.” According to the updated White House website (https://www.whitehouse.gov/trade-deals-working-all-americans), “this strategy starts by withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and making certain that any new trade deals are in the interests of American workers.”
On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly criticized the TPP.
Last summer, Trump described the 12-nation free-trade agreement as “another disaster done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country, just a continuing rape of our country.”
After winning the election, he announced (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38059623) that he would tear up the TPP on day one.
The TPP was the economic pillar of Obama’s pivot to Asia. The giant free-trade agreement, which was signed but not ratified by the U.S., was billed as an essential counterweight to China.
The Obama administration argued (https://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/economy/trade) that if the U.S. does not write the rules for international trade, “competitors who don’t share our values, like China, will step in and fill that void.” Former U.S. trade representative Michael Froman stressed (http://dailycaller.com/2016/08/22/could-a-tpp-failure-spell-disaster-for-us-power-in-asia/) that failing to ratify the TPP would be the equivalent of “handing China the keys to the castle.”
“If anyone were to say China is playing a leadership role in the world, I would say it’s not China rushing to the front but rather the front runners have stepped back leaving the place to China,” explained (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-usa-politics-idUSKBN1570ZZ) Zhang Jun, director general of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs international economics department. “If China is required to play that leadership role then China will assume its responsibilities.”
Japan, a staunch U.S. ally in the Asia-Pacific, has been a strong advocate for the TPP and made the deal a cornerstone of domestic economic reform. The Japanese prime minister encouraged Trump to reconsider his plan Monday.
“I believe President Trump understands the importance of free and fair trade, so I’d like to pursue his understanding on the strategic and economic importance of the TPP trade pact,” Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said (http://in.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-japan-idINKBN1570OO).
Regardless, Japan intends to continue to cooperate with the Trump administration. “When we met last time, I believed him to be trustworthy, this belief has not changed today,” Abe added.

Another promise by Trump kept.....the illiberals should make note of that, since their Special Man just couldn't keep his promises.

Looks like the leftness will have to own up to the facts of reality.

The same thing was said about nafta that has decimated decent middle class jobs in america. Nafta opened the door for the exodus to china and obamas trade deal did the same thing with asia and south america.

Unions have labor lawyers on retainer its all they do. When they say something is bad for labor you can take that to the bank

For outsourcing America and ruining our economy, the goal of the globalist agenda is to ruin American independence.

Leaving the TPP is one of the biggest and most popular things Trump ran on, and he pulled through almost asap. Kudos to him.

Obama will get credit for all he's done. He drove wedges between peoples and between groups and law enforcement. Yes, and he's thrown away our wealth, putting us in the deepest debt ever seen.

Failing to enforce federal law after pledging to uphold it was a breach of trust and taking action against states for enforcing the laws he avoided~well, I and most Americans give him credit for what he's done.

Yep, we can also give him that credit for not keeping his promises while he tricked the illiberals due to their ignorance of most things political.
