Writing for the New York Times, prominent US democrat Bernie Sanders makes the case for his party to commit to reject the TPP in the post-election "lame duck period" and beyond.
In the wake of Brexit, he writes, "We need to fundamentally reject our “free trade” policies and move to fair trade. Americans should not have to compete against workers in low-wage countries who earn pennies an hour. We must defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership. We must help poor countries develop sustainable economic models."
