>US President Donald Trump has agreed to reconsider the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free trade pact with primarily Asia-Pacific countries that he backed out of last year.

>Mr Trump made the commitment while meeting politicians from farming states, who are among those concerned about a trade war, senators say.

>The president has previously slammed the deal as a potential "disaster".

>But his trade strategy is under fire as a conflict escalates with China.

>Politicians, including some from his own party, are worried that he is leading the US into a damaging economic battle with China, after levying tariffs on steel and aluminium and threatening taxes on billions more in Chinese goods.

>They have said the administration should be working with other countries to pressure China, instead of wielding tariffs that invite retaliation on industries such as agriculture.

>Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican who represents Nebraska and has been sharply critical of the tariffs, said it was "good news" that the president directed top staff, including US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, to negotiate US entry into TPP".

>"The best thing the United States can do to push back against Chinese cheating now is to lead the other 11 Pacific nations that believe in free trade and the rule of law, " he said.

>The TPP, a trade deal that was to involve 12 countries including the US, was conceived under former President Barack Obama as a way to counter China's surging power in the region.

>Labour unions and others had criticised it as too favourable to business. Mr Trump's Democratic rival in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, also came out against the agreement during the campaign.

>Withdrawing from the deal was one of Mr Trump's first acts as president, delivering one of his core campaign promises.

>After he withdrew, the remaining 11 countries continued to negotiate over the pact, signing the deal in March.

>Exporters, such as farmers, have said they are now concerned that the US will be at a disadvantage to competitors in the region.

Well, anon, "your ideas are retarded" is good to go. I mean, just leave off the "you're a faggot" part of what you wrote, basically.

"I hope that you all realize that corporations and politicos have already been caught trolling websites to manage impressions and manipulate opinion. It's an established tactic to use anonymous accounts to create an illusion of consensus.

It's the internet version of a laugh-track."

>"article"
This article is garbage. Here's why:

Research shows that if you aren't a reader by the fourth grade, statistically you won't ever be. I'm curious who OP is posting this article for - an article which is without relevant context and describes nothing of the power relations behind this story. We are in the era of JTRIG- you simply cannot trust what appear to be social concensus cues on the internet anymore to base your opinions on. And since Reddit's top thread re:TPP has all the top comments pushing TPP, lest you not see for yourself what's going on lets get one thing out of the way: TPP is bad.
