    President Donald Trump signed three executive Monday, which included formally withdrawing the United states from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership. He called the move “a great thing for American workers.” (Published Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017)

    Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC on Tuesday he is open to continuing talks on a proposed trade pact with the European Union.

    Ross said that while the U.S. has withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact with Pacific Rim nations, or TPP, “we did not withdraw from TTIP.”

    Talks around the proposed Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership were put on hold following President Donald Trump's election last year.

    Ross’ comments come after a series of tweets from Trump directed toward Germany over trade.
