Trump pledges to undo Biden admin­is­tra­tion plan for Asia trade deal

For­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said over the week­end that he will with­draw the Unit­ed States from the Pacif­ic trade deal cur­rent­ly being advanced by Pres­i­dent Joe Biden.
Trump made the com­ments at a cam­paign event in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Sat­ur­day evening, as Biden returned from unveil­ing the trade agree­ment at the Asia-Pacif­ic Eco­nom­ic Coop­er­a­tion sum­mit in Cal­i­for­nia. The for­mer pres­i­dent told sup­port­ers that the new deal, which is still being worked out, would cause U.S. man­u­fac­tur­ing jobs to be shipped over­seas.

“Under the next admin­is­tra­tion… the Biden plan for ‘TPP Two’ will be dead on day one,” Trump said, describ­ing Biden’s Indo-Pacif­ic Eco­nom­ic Frame­work for Pros­per­i­ty as a new ver­sion of the Trans-Pacif­ic Part­ner­ship, which the for­mer pres­i­dent pulled the U.S. out of in Jan­u­ary 2017.
“It’s worse than the first one,” he said of the new deal. “Threat­en­ing to pul­ver­ize farm­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers with anoth­er mas­sive glob­al­ist mon­stros­i­ty designed to tur­bocharge out­sourc­ing to Asia.”
