‘GO GET IT DONE:’ Trump To Take Another Look At TPP

President Donald Trump instructed Ambassador Robert Lighthizer and National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow to look into rejoining the trans-pacific partnership, Senators Ben Sasse and Pat Roberts told White House reporters Thursday.

Sasse noted that Trump “deputized” Kudlow to “go get it done” and explore the possibility of rejoining TPP as the 12th party now that the other 11 nations have struck a deal. “It might be easier for us to join now, as opposed to long process,” he elaborated.

The Nebraska Senator cautioned however that “The president is a guy who likes to blue-sky a lot and entertain a lot of different ideas, but he multiple times reaffirmed the point that TPP might be easier for us to join now.”
