...the biggest winner is now the country who was never included in the TPP to begin with...

China: As my colleague Carrie Gracie explains, China is well placed to step into the US's global footprint with both its regional trade deal alternative, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership deal, and it's massive and expensive One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, which aims to build roads, ports and highways through much of Asia.

Among the myriad problems with the TPP is the following.

Anti-slavery clause modified to include Malaysia in TPPA

I can't express how overjoyed I am to see Malaysia on the "loser" list above. The United States should have nothing to do with supporting slavery. We are taking baby steps toward a better world. I hope Trump will keep the momentum going.

Trump is obviously not perfect. I don't see why everyone can't agree to celebrate Trump's decision to pull out of the TPP.

This is a small victory for humanity versus abject evil.

i concur, notice how we never get much say in the big decisions, we seem to just have to ride it.

Australia will get boned as usual, too busy trying to be the cool kid on the world stage.

How exactly is this a victory?

Malaysia will reorient themselves towards China. And China doesn't care much about human rights and slavery.

China will indeed be more than happy to take over the lead in Asia, while the USA are busy building walls.
