Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on Trump Proposal to Rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership

April 12, 2018
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) today released the following statement in response to reports that President Trump is considering rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

“Candidate Trump was clear: the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was based on the failed trade model of the past, and bad for hardworking families in communities across Ohio and the United States. It was a big reason why he won many states like mine. Now, as President, Donald Trump is considering one of his biggest flip-flops yet. One that would take us backwards – rejoining the TPP. There is a right way and a wrong way to negotiate trade deals that benefit all, and TPP is not it. It would be a betrayal to the families struggling to make ends meet. He should stand by his word and keep the United States out of this broken trade deal,” said Congressman Ryan.
