If you have watched enough horror movies, you know that the monster isn't dead till it's REALLY dead. I for one am not counting on Trump, especially with a Rethuglican-controlled Congress, to kill this off for good. Nor would I put it past them to work out a similar deal. Keep the champagne in the cellar for now.

Everything pointed to not enough support to pass anyhow-and the Senate changes this week increased that problem if anything--not sure even Trump can change those aspects. Thanks Judy

Noted. Thanks, Judy.
Although this looks good, I'm afraid I have to concur with Freya's above comment. We definitely need to keep an eye on even worse deal could be coming. We just have to make sure the opposition is there.

I really hope this is true! France and Germany are less and less interested in ratifying it, so with any luck it will die.

Like Freya, I can envision this monster being reanimated. :-) For now though, it really does look like the TPP is dead. I'm sure this is a blow to Pres. Obama, who is counting on the TPP as a legacy issue.

I read somewhere that Trump is opposed to the TPP, and said he would be only slightly likely to look at completely revamping it. I'm sure that would be hopelessly cumbersome, considering its length and the number of signatories involved. I even read somewhere that Trump said he would like to dismantle and pull out of NAFTA.

The Democrats should never have breathed life into this Monster in the first place.

Thanks Judy - as I commented in your other related article - I'm so glad this nightmarish deal is (hopefully really) history ... and bad one for that matter!

Given the staunch opposition in Continental Europe I don't think that under Pres Trump there is a chance to shove such a deal down the throats of European people even if they modify it. The key is - as Lois mentions above - that people don't go back to sleep. We must get used again to the old school of Management thinking (from German): "trust is good - control is better". Politics - which means our all wellbeing - can't be left to the politicians as we have seen especially in the past few decades. They are with a few exceptions all on the payrolls of the Military-Industrial-Zionist Complex.
