One of President Trump’s most popular campaign promises was that he would “kill” TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), and NAFTA. True to his word, he did kill TPP on his first day in office. The promise was that the US would engage one on one with other countries in unilateral trade agreements. “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo,” was a slogan that resonated deep within the American people, and Mr. Trump was elected.
