OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:

Pacific Trade Talks at Crucial Juncture (WILLIAM MAULDIN, Sept. 29, 2015, WSJ)

Senior officials from the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia and seven other countries hope in Atlanta to iron out the remaining details for a trade bloc that would encompass about two-fifths of the world's economy and a third of global trade. Absent from the trade group is China.

President Barack Obama, backed by most Republicans in Congress but few Democrats, is pushing the TPP to open up trade with countries in Asia-Pacific and impose American-style rules of the road for business at a time when China's economic influence is growing.
