Trump, Obama meet in Mexican city
President Donald Trump and his wife Michelle are set to arrive in Mexico City on Friday for a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Mexican officials to discuss the “tough” trade deal, The Hill’s Ed O’Keefe reports.
The White House says that the visit will include a meeting of the two leaders in the Oval Office.
The president will also meet with U.S. allies, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey and Qatar.
Trump has expressed his displeasure with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal that he signed last year.
The deal has been a thorn in the side of Trump since he took office and has been the subject of protests at airports across the country.
The pact was approved in a hastily called vote in March and took effect this month.
A number of states have taken legal action against the deal, claiming that it hurts workers and consumer protections.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court refused to review the ruling, which the Trump administration appealed to the U.K. Supreme Court.
