U.S. President Donald Trump decided that the United States would now
exit from the trade negotiations known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Embarrassingly, some U.S. labor leaders stood beside him to celebrate
this action. Is the U.S. withdrawal from the TPP part of a plan to
encourage employment in the United States? No. The exit of the United
States from the TPP should be understood along two axis – one merely
about U.S. politics and the other about a new strategy to revive
flagging U.S. power in the world.
