THE LAST REAGANAUT:

Obama makes trade deal top priority in remaining months (KEVIN FREKING, 9/05/16, Associated Press)

Obama plugged the trade agreement Monday in China, saying it is "indisputable that it would create a better deal for us than the status quo." He said he doesn't have to sell the deal to Asian leaders who were part of the negotiations because "they see this as the right thing to do for their own countries."
