Can you forgive me for ignoring your insistence over these past three years that the Trans-Pacific Partnership include enforceable currency disciplines?

 

I do respect you and take what you say seriously.  It’s just that you and your 230 House and 60 Senate friends have been so demanding about this. Plus, if I admit to Japan or Vietnam or others that TPP is DOA in Congress without these terms, they might get very upset. No, no I do not prioritize getting a TPP deal over stopping the cheating. Can we talk about something else?
