A letter from the Freedom Partners is urging the President to rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership, now known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Freedom Partners started in 2011 to promote the benefits of free markets and a free society. The group launched an advertising campaign this week against President Trump’s trade policy and ongoing trade war with China, that is expected to cost farmers and ranchers $11 billion. In a corresponding letter, the group said “we must join them,” referring to nations that are “not waiting for us,” and signing trade deals to eliminate tariffs. The organization calls the new TPP agreement one that includes better standards for trade and significantly lowered tariffs.
Once in full effect, the group alleges that the agreement will put American businesses at a distinct competitive disadvantage and will increase trade losses to other countries.
