President of the United States Donald Trump, has fulfilled one of its promises

President of the United States Donald Trump, has fulfilled one of its promises while campaigning for his election,  to withdraw from  the Trans-Pacific Partnership-TPP. Donald Trump not only the repealed US   TPP membership but also threatened to impose sanctions for companies that move US jobs overseas.

Trans Pacific Partnership  was signed by 12 countries in Asia Pacific in New Zealand during  of Barack Obama's leadership. But  it has been rejected by the majority of citizens of the United States itself, and since its creation has not been approved nor ratified by the US Congress.

With the withdrawal of the US from membership of  the TPP, it would  diminished the strength of the economy. Originally the twelve countries that joined TPP were 40% of  the world economic power as it includes the United States, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Chile and Peru. China, however, did not join  the partnership.

The exit of the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership raises questions about the continuation of the partnership. Will Donald Trump's decision affect the attitudes and policies of other member states, such as Australia, Japan, Canada and Mexico?

 For the United States alone, there will be no  real political risk  because Congress has not ratified the TPP. Through the decision on the first day of his reign, Trump actually got  his own image for consistency. For other countries, including members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, President Donald Trump’s  decision may be an indication that the new president would probably change a lot of US foreign policies as put forward during the campaign.
