Get your act together, a badass gun swinging cowboy is about to enter the saloon. Hide under the table, or offer him a trip upstairs for a game of poker and a dance with Miss Asia.

The LDP have already promised extra cash payments for farmers to compensate having to deal with competition. So doing a deal with countries that actually have money making farmers who produce extra butter, meat, and rice rebrand as Japonese makes sence. It's the intellectual and company rights that's alarmingly. Yey my tax dollars going to elderly farmers, because they are so useless they can't make a profit. And my internet access is curtailed because of regional issues what's not to like, pay more get less thanks LDP.

Don't let the USA join the PPT! Commentaries said that after the US joined the PPT negotiations, they made the PPT a tool for American corporate governance of the world.

And now imagine if US was to join negotiations on TPP as well as PPT ...that would be even worse ☺

i agree with Trump's approach to rebuild the middle class at the expense of global elites.

Trump is the elected man of America's global elite. He's their boy. Don't drink the kool-aid.

From my checking in internet: "TPP origins can be traced to a little-known four-party free trade agreement concluded in 2005 by New Zealand, Chile, Singapore and Brunei."

Why not those countries have initiatives and other countries that want to belong TPP just follow what they are doing. USA is out with Trump policy, so let USA be in their protectionism as they like...Japan with Abe policy, hmm, so much approaches to Trump(?) is now very unclear TPP going ahead. Actually, I'd like NZ and Australia to be closer to Japan to proceed free trade agreement for dairy farming products.
