The TPP trade deal was signed by 12 countries which together cover 40% of the world's economy.

Trump knows a bad business deal when he sees it...

I hope this is true. But, I'll believe it when I see it.

Quitting TPP: Good

Selling the internet to Comcast: Bad

Looks like today is a wash

If Trump says he is not going to push it through congress. Then it's over, regardless.

The entire TPP become pointless without US, since according to agreement 80% participant by market size has to agree in order the agreement to proceed. US represents 60%.

What's more, the pacific side of TPP all already have one form of FTA or another, TPP is strictly about US, not other asian participants. Between Asia and latam participant of TPP, trade is small.

So, it's game over for TPP. Once rcep moves forward, the next one is FTAAP. All of them are pure FTA (tariff reduction), without the legal mambo jambo that Obama insists.
