Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One of the articles you cited says
t the beginning of 2017, the U.S. was set to lead an almost identical Asia-Pacific deal that excluded China, called the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP. But Trump scuttled the TPP immediately after his inauguration. It had been negotiated by the Obama Administration.
Is she ignorant of the fact that Hilary Clinton also said that she would withdraw from the agreement? Or is she just assuming that Clinton was lying (which would help explain why she lost)?

Incidentally, one of the reasons for all the opposition to the TPP was those ISDS courts. If TPP was so important to fight the Chinese, the supporters could have got that part removed from the agreement (such clauses seem to be missing in these new Chinese deals). Why the insistence on blaming Trump when the Democrats are just as "guilty"?
