Trump: I would only rejoin TPP if deal was 'substantially better' than Obama's

On Thursday, the White House said the president had directed U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow "to take another look at whether or not a better deal could be negotiated".

"When the USA walked away, they dropped a lot our intellectual property provisions and labor provisions that made the agreement really important", he said.

The air campaign could frustrate those in Trump's base who oppose military intervention and are wary of open-ended conflicts.

The United States launched "precision" military strikes Friday in Syria, in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack that killed dozens last weekend. "This calls for a collective and effective response by the worldwide community".

The deal was signed just before Mr Trump slapped steep tariffs on imported steel and aluminium, and also before tit-for-tat warnings between the USA and China over imposing levies on each other's goods. "Hopefully, someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and maybe even Iran - but maybe not". It authorized use of force against anyone involved in those attacks or related forces, and has been used to justify US military actions since then, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many waved Syrian, Russian and Iranian flags.

"NATO has consistently condemned Syria's continued use of chemical weapons as a clear breach of global norms and agreements".

A broader question is whether the allied attacks are part of a revamped, coherent political strategy to end the war on terms that do not leave Assad in power.

U.S. President Donald Trump said the United States would only join the Trans Pacific Partnership, a multinational trade deal his administration walked away from a year ago, if it offered "substantially better" terms than those provided under previous negotiations. "We're here to advocate for the industry - that's No. 1 - but we also are here to sift through some of the rhetoric and line that up with the reality", Priest said.

The predawn attack Saturday targeted three Syrian sites that the Pentagon said were used to research, produce or stockpile chemical agents.

In his nationwide address, Trump stressed that he has no interest in a longtime fight with Syria. "As other nations step up their contributions we look forward to the day we can bring our warriors home".

The U.S. left what was then a 12-nation pact in January 2017 during Trump's first full weekday in the Oval Office. They are in eastern Syria, far from Damascus. He argued bilateral deals offered better terms for US businesses and workers, and signaled an intention to raise trade barriers. Vice President Pence is now in Peru.

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. Agen said Pence was unable to reach Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer before the speech but spoke with him after.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

After calling the deal "a disaster" during his presidential campaign, Trump withdrew the US from the 12-member pact with a memorandum on January 2017 - three days after his inauguration.
