THIS IS WHY TRUMP QUIT THE TPP

Many people must be wondering why USA President, Donald Trump issued an Executive Order to leave the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). On the surface the TPP seems like a beneficial free trade agreement, but dig deeper and you find that it is like another version of the EU, packed with regulations and environmental dictats including those on climate change. Read this article for more details. It would have tied the USA into carrying out things that were against the benefit of its own citizens. Thank goodness they elected Donald just in time.

It mentions PTT in the article - what does this stand for? Could not find any other time it was mentioned.

You are right it does mention PTT, but on re-reading it I believe it is a typo error and should have been TPP - Trans-Pacific Partnership
