President Trump May Want the US to Rejoin the TPP. But It Won't Be So Simple

When Obama turned over the office to President Donald Trump the unemployment rate was low, the stock market was already in the 20,000-plus range, and is still in the low 20,000 range. Eswar Prasad, a trade expert at Cornell University, said it was hard to imagine that the United States would be "welcomed with open arms" by the current members or have much leverage in reshaping the deal.
Comparing the multicountry trade agreement to "a glasswork", Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief cabinet secretary, cautioned against any efforts to change it to accommodate Trump. "You'd need a whole renegotiation". Taro Aso, Japan's finance minister and deputy prime minister said that "if the news is true, we would welcome it".
Thursday evening, the president further clarified his desired conditions for re-entering the agreement via Twitter, saying he would only rejoin if the deal was "substantially better" than the one negotiated by President Obama. He said it's time to work with a coalition of trading partners to increase pressure on China.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have been renewing their pitches for the pact - rather than Trump's threats of steep tariffs on steel and other products - as a way to counter China on trade. Sen. Trump has warned that he could levy tariffs on $150 billion in Chinese goods, prompting Beijing to threaten retaliatory measures aimed at American soybeans, airplanes and other products.
The news drew a rebuke from opponents of the multilateral trade pact.
The risk of an escalating trade war with China has panicked American farmers and ranchers, who send many of their products overseas. Trump rooted his campaign in correcting what he saw as unfair trade practices that were hurting American workers and manufacturers, and, very soon after taking office, Trump signed an executive order that withdrew the USA from the partnership. It would give the pact a great deal more heft and help position it as an economic counterweight to China, which increasingly dominates the Asia-Pacific region.

"Republicans should not be giving Obama fast-track authority on trade".
Japanese officials said they welcome the move if it means that Trump is recognizing the importance of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP member nations have spent the 15 months since the country's exit renegotiating the deal and signed a massive multinational deal this year.
The barriers to a new pact are considerable.
Mr Michael Miller, chairman of US Wheat Associates and a farmer in Washington, said rejoining the deal would allow his industry to compete on a level playing field with competitors in Australia and Canada, which both stayed in the accord.
For its part, the Trump administration worries that the partnership will become a zero-tariff backdoor for Chinese goods into the US market.
