The economic nationalists in the White House are ascendant. The overture on TPP 11 from the Trump administration was never credible. They are demanding a "better deal" for the U.S. I cannot identify ANY country that wants to negotiate with this U.S. administration given its misguided priority of attempting to reduce trade deficits in goods with trade agreements, and how they treat existing or negotiated trade agreements as disposable. [While it has escaped criticism of its trade surplus with the U.S. so far], Japan is on the [administration's] radar.
