Abstract

This poster explores the free trade responses to President Trump’s protectionist economic agenda proposed in his campaign. In the 2016 election President Trump criticized free trade deals such as North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Much of the his campaign centered around this criticism, and blaming these free trade deals for poor economic performance and job loss. Within a few days of President Trump’s inauguration, he withdrew the United States from the TPP, and promised to renegotiate NAFTA. The research paper examines a number of free trade responses and arguments, that contradict this protectionist policy.It also includes possible costs and benefits of free trade deals that the United States has entered into at this point, as well as the effects the TPP may have had.
