Sanders: I'll work with Trump on trade: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) praised President Trump Monday for pulling out of a massive Asia-Pacific trade deal, offering to work with him on the issue in the future.
On Monday, Trump signed an executive order to end U.S. participation in the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), former President Obama's top trade priority during his second term. The Trump administration is expected to focus instead on bilateral trade deals with the countries included in the deal.
"Now is the time to develop a new trade policy that helps working families, not just multi-national corporations," Sanders said in a statement. "If President Trump is serious about a new policy to help American workers then I would be delighted to work with him.”
Sanders hailed the move, saying the TPP is "dead and gone." Here’s The Hill’s Jordain Carney with more: http://bit.ly/2kakQvJ.
