Delaney: Opponents of TPP Contributed to Current Trump Trade Troubles

FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – As trade chaos continues, presidential candidate John Delaney releases the following statement:

“American workers, farmers, and entrepreneurs are being hurt by President Trump’s trade war. But here’s the hard truth about the trade fight with China: Trump isn’t the only one to blame. Everyone on the far left and the far right who undermined President Obama and the US involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership is to blame. By enabling Trumponomics, they had us walk away from new markets and from a huge leverage point. We could have set the terms in the region with TPP. Now we’re playing catchup. It’s another lesson – when you put politics over the facts, the country suffers.”
