President Donald Trump's first executive action on Monday will be to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, reports CNN.
Just like NAFTA, TPP is a crony trade deal, but it is better than no trade. (SEE: Free Trade, No Trade, Crony Trade and Trump Trade).
There certainly can be a lot of improvement over TPP but that improvement would come by moving towards greater free trade. But there is no indication that Trump wants to move in the direction of free trade.
