U.S. President Barack Obama Tries to Convince Asian Nations U.S. Will Ratify TPP

Beijing, September 7 (RHC)-- At the G-20 summit in China, U.S. President Barack Obama reportedly tried to assure Asian nations that the United States would, in fact, ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership, despite mounting opposition.  Obama said that to ratify the treaty would be "smart of America," adding that "it is indisputable that it would create a better deal for us."

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a massive proposed trade deal that would encompass 12 Pacific Rim nations, including the United States, and 40 percent of the global economy. 

U.S. presidential nominees Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Jill Stein have all said they would not sign the TPP.  It has faced years of public protests by those who say it benefits corporations at the expense of health and environmental regulations.
