Asian Press Reporting US has Withdrawn from the TPP

Trump said withdrawing from the TPP would be his first move when he assumed office.

From Nikkei:
Soon after President Donald Trump was sworn in, his administration announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade pact championed by former President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. 
The White House on Friday also wasted no time in declaring a renegotiation of the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. 
Trump is expected to take a more isolationist, protectionist stance, and the international community is concerned that the U.S. will continue to draw inward. 
Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the U.S. on Friday, repeating his campaign pledges of putting American interests first and restoring national glory to a deeply polarized public.

I don't think we are as deeply polarized as the media makes us out to be. The elite few are polarized and have greater ability to cast their voices. But where I live, there is quite a bit of peace and harmony amongst us. Sure, their are pockets of political Balkanization but they are niche industries dependent of their screech. They have lost market share and their stake in the democratic process is diminishing, as it should.

Trump is keeping his promises. Unbelievable. Almost magical to watch a return to ethics.

NATO? The U.N.? Renegotiations are in order for them too. These are the things the POTUS promised us.

We are badly polarized here where I live. Very unpleasant.
