The Obama administration has given up on trying to push through the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal in a lame-duck session as hopes for its last-minute approval, about which there was much speculation prior to the election, faded with During Trump’s victory."We have worked closely with Congress to resolve outstanding issues and are ready to move forward, but this is a legislative process and it's up to congressional leaders as to whether and when this moves forward," the spokesman for US Trade Representative Matt McAlvanah said Friday. President Barack Obama reportedly hoped have the deal approved by Congress before he turns over the White House to Trump. The post-election lame-duck session is set to start Monday, but it is unlikely that the 12-nation trade deal will be on the table. Now Obama does have two months left in office America so he could still sneak it in, because well we know Obama to be a known liar after all these horrible years of his administration. If we end up not seeing a TPP deal pushed through before Trump claims the Oval Office and if Trump negotiates NAFTA or get's rid of it completely, well America we could become a free market once again. You could say Trump now being President has forced the decision to not pass TPP, since well the Republicans now control Washington DC in every form of office you can think of since election night. The TPP deal would of completely screwed the economy over for the common American, and would of given only the lobbyist and corporations the riches. After Obama possibly giving up on TPP, there really will be no such thing as an Obama legacy in the history books. Obama just concentrate on packing your bags, because the train is coming through to fix everything you destroyed.
