Vice President Supports TPP Withdrawal

Recommended Posts

Washington, DC – Vice President Kyle Fitzgerald spoke to the press in support of President Macmillan’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership. 

“I strongly support President Macmillan’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership, also known as TPP.  Free trade agreements signed in the last couple decades such as NAFTA and CAFTA have shown us the dangers of entering into multi-lateral deals with third-world countries who rely on sweatshop labor. Since 2000, America has lost over five million manufacturing jobs largely as a result of our massive trade deficit that currently sits at over $500 billion per year. And as bad as NAFTA, CAFTA and other agreements are for U.S. manufacturing, TPP might have been even worse.

“TPP includes way too many developing nations with incredibly lax environmental, labor, and safety standards that American manufacturers can’t possibly compete with. Some of these countries have even been accused of serious human rights violations. NAFTA only includes one developing country – Mexico – and the results were devastating. We watched as multi-national corporations – one after another – closed factories here in America and rebuilt them as sweatshops in Mexico. TPP includes not only Mexico but several other developing nations that will undoubtedly use this as an opportunity to rip apart millions of manufacturing jobs from American communities.

“TPP also includes several countries that have been suspected of currency manipulation while offering us absolutely no protection from this unfair trade practice. Currency manipulation occurs when countries artificially devalue their currency so they can flood the global market with cheap goods, undercutting American manufacturers in the process. Currency manipulation kills American jobs.

“TPP as it is currently constructed is just not in America’s best interests. This administration is not interested in entering into deals with currency manipulators and human rights violators – especially not without taking the necessary steps to protect our economy and our jobs from the effects of these abuses.”
