The full letter can be seen here.
It is signed by Steve Daines, Michael Rounds, Roy Blunt, James Lankford, Jeff Flake, John Cornyn, Orrin Hatch, Lindsey Graham, Johnny Isakson, John Barrasso, Cory Gardner, Ben Sasse, Mike Enzi, Jerry Moran, Ron Johnson, Joni Ernst, Charles Grassley, Dan Sullivan, Lisa Murkowski, Todd Young, Pat Roberts, Richard Burr, Roger Wicker and John McCain. President Trump floated the idea of reentering the Trans-Pacific Partnership at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Half of the Republican Senate is pressuring Trump to return to the status quo:
“More than two dozen Senate Republicans are urging President Trump to re-engage in Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations.
The 25 GOP lawmakers sent a letter to Trump on Friday saying they support his recent comments that he may consider U.S. participation if the 11-nation Asia-Pacific pact is improved.
“We encourage you to work aggressively to secure reforms that would allow the United States to join the agreement,” the senators wrote.
The Republican letter, which was released on Wednesday, was sent the same day Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross made public two reports on steel and aluminum that provided Trump with several recommendations, including steep tariffs and strict quotas. …”
It is a reminder of how impervious the GOP is to change after it has gotten its way on defense spending, energy, deregulation, the tax cuts, foreign policy, entitlements, healthcare and immigration. The people who voted for “change” in the 2016 election got a generic Republic administration.
