Trump Pivots on TPP, but the Footwear Industry Has 'Seen This Before'

Members of Congress and governors from agriculture states met with the president for over an hour at the White House, leaving feeling confident that he wanted to re-enter the trade agreement.

"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad".

While no further strikes have been planned, Le Drian refused to rule out a further attack if Assad crossed the "red line" of using chemical weapons again. "The Assad regime must not be allowed to commit such crimes with impunity", Mr Turnbull said in a statement on Saturday.

Trump chastised Syria's two main allies, Russia and Iran, for their roles in supporting "murderous dictators", and noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin had guaranteed a 2013 worldwide agreement for Assad to get rid of all of his chemical weapons.

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", the USA president said in a televised address. Officials said the plan to hit three targets in Syria was aimed at avoiding "collateral damage", including Russian assets.

There were no reports of any allied losses and only limited resistance in the form of some Syrian surface-to-air missile activity. He also added, "Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path". Hopefully, someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and maybe even Iran - but maybe not.

The approach, Biddle said, reflects Trump's roots as a real estate developer who made risky bets and went bankrupt several times on the way to making billions of dollars.

The Trump administration "could walk right back in with the exact same deal from past year that they walked out of, and claim victory", said Smith, who noted that the government of Abe "has been continuously and quietly encouraging the USA administration to take another look" at the pact.

Nobody expects a coherent and consistent trade policy from President Donald Trump.

In April 2017 the USA fired 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase that Washington believed was used to carry out a chemical attack.

The action comes nearly a week after rebels in the beleaguered nation claimed Syrian forces under Assad killed more than 40 men, women and children in a chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma.

Through it all, U.S. and Western officials said it was clear Trump meant to take military action.

Australia's trade minister, Steven Ciobo, said that with a deal already in place, he "can't see that all being thrown open to appease the United States".

Japan Finance Minister Taro Aso also welcomed the US' decision to explore the possibility of rejoining the CPTPP.

The strikes were carried out together with Britain and France, he said. Pence spoke with House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Frederick Burke, managing partner for Vietnam at the American law firm Baker McKenzie, said that the Vietnamese government is "very aware of and focused on the issue of circumvention" in trade. They are in eastern Syria, far from Damascus. He was also planning to get the USA out of Syria. "We look forward to the day we can bring our warriors home, and great warriors they are".
