    Like it or not, the future is one where Globalism is fundamental to our survival. This is just delaying and complicating an inevitable stage of our development as a race.

    IT also means that TPP will not happen, it's impossible for the criteria which brings it into force to be met now.

    Doesn't fill me with a great deal of confidence that Britain will be securing a comprehensive free trade deal with the US any time soon.

    Trump's done more in four days than Obama ever did in eight years. Looks like America is finally on the rise again.

    Im soooooooooooooooo happy that Donald Trump has withdrawn USA from TTIP.

    He has just saved America from a deal that would have made things VERY VERY difficult for the working class of America.

    Thank you sooo much God for making this happen. Thank you God for a hard Brexit.

    Do people realise that this was a symbolic gesture? The deal had not been ratified by Congress.

    I'm also confused as to why right wing, 'pro-business' individuals are so happy that the US might pull out of a thoroughly pro-business trade agreement...

    Criticism of this issue came from both sides, so stop making it a partisan issue.

    It's a fact that this agreement is very pro business , why are pro business right wing folk opposing it?

    I can understand left wing democrats but right wing Republicans?

    Pathetic.

    Many Republicans supported it, Democrats largely opposed

    People, largely those who label themselves progressives have been protesting against it all over the world

    This is a good thing Trump even those who dislike Trump can agree

    Your stating it's a fact without evidence does not make it so.
