Washington, D.C. – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan’s junior U.S. Senator is supporting an executive order by President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or T-P-P.

Democrat Gary Peters says he has long opposed the trade deal because it fails to address unfair labor practices and foreign currency manipulation that puts American manufacturers and automakers at a competitive disadvantage.

Peters says he recently cosponsored legislation requiring the President to make the withdrawal and is pleased Trump took the step to withdraw from the agreement.
