President Trump Meets With Union Leaders

President Donald Trump met with union representatives Monday to discuss his executive order to dissolve the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

“We just officially terminated TPP,” Trump said to applause from the union members.

Trump indicated a shift from past trade policies, saying, “We’re going to have trade but we’re going to have one-on-one and if somebody misbehaves, we’re going to send them a letter of termination.”

The United States negotiated trade agreements in the past like the TPP and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which included more than two nations in the pact.

Trump expressed hope that companies would bring jobs back to the United States, telling the union representatives they “will be responsible for getting those plants built.”

“Companies that left are going to come back to our country and they’re going to hire a lot of people,” Trump told attendees.
