Withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Current Status: FulfilledAs of
"I will begin taking the following seven actions to protect American workers:
SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership;"
- "Donald Trump's Contract With The American Voter," October 2016
The deal was never approved by Congress and never had sufficient support in the House of Representatives to be passed following its February 2016 signing, so Trump will not have to do anything to get out of the pact.
He didn't follow through on his first day in office, but on January 23rd, Trump signed a presidential memorandum withdrawing the U.S. from the agreement.
However, in April 2018, Trump asked two of his economic advisers to explore rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, possibly in an attempt to modify the agreement.
