4/17/18 Tweet - "While Japan and South Korea would like us to go back into TPP, I don't like the deal for the United States. Too many contingencies and no way to get out if it doesn't work. Bilateral deals are far more efficient, profitable and better for OUR workers. Look how bad WTO is to U.S." Pres. Donald Trump 4/13/18 President Donald J. Trump's Weekly Address Pres. Donald Trump 4/12/18 Remarks by President Trump in Meeting with Governors and Members of Congress Pres. Donald Trump 4/12/18 Tweet - "Would only join TPP if the deal were substantially better than the deal offered to Pres. Obama.

Donald Trump 4/08/18 Tweet - "President Xi and I will always be friends, no matter what happens with our dispute on trade. China will take down its Trade Barriers because it is the right thing to do. Taxes will become Reciprocal & a deal will be made on Intellectual Property. Great future for both countries!" Pres. Donald Trump 4/07/18 Tweet - "The United States hasn't had a Trade Surplus with China in 40 years. They must end unfair trade, take down barriers and charge only Reciprocal Tariffs.

Donald Trump 3/10/18 Tweet - "The European Union, wonderful countries who treat the U.S. very badly on trade, are complaining about the tariffs on Steel & Aluminum. If they drop their horrific barriers & tariffs on U.S. products going in, we will likewise drop ours. Big Deficit. If not, we Tax Cars etc. FAIR!" Pres. Donald Trump 3/09/18 Tweet - "Spoke to PM @TurnbullMalcolm of Australia. He is committed to having a very fair and reciprocal military and trade relationship.

Mike Pence 3/05/18 Tweet - "We have large trade deficits with Mexico and Canada. NAFTA, which is under renegotiation right now, has been a bad deal for U.S.A. Massive relocation of companies & jobs. Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum will only come off if new & fair NAFTA agreement is signed. Also, Canada must.....treat our farmers much better. Highly restrictive. Mexico must do much more on stopping drugs from pouring into the U.S. They have not done what needs to be done. Millions of people addicted and dying." Pres. Donald Trump 3/03/18 Tweet - "If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S. They make it impossible for our cars (and more) to sell there. Big trade imbalance!" Pres. Donald Trump 3/03/18 Tweet - "The United States has an $800 Billion Dollar Yearly Trade Deficit because of our "very stupid" trade deals and policies.

Donald Trump 3/02/18 Tweet - "When a country Taxes our products coming in at, say, 50%, and we Tax the same product coming into our country at ZERO, not fair or smart.

Donald Trump 3/02/18 Tweet - "When a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win.

Donald Trump 3/01/18 Tweet - "Our Steel and Aluminum industries (and many others) have been decimated by decades of unfair trade and bad policy with countries from around the world.
