I am a fanboy of free trade, and I think the US should have mostly an open trade policy with everyone--and not need deals--but I suppose I support the TPP.

China is not part of the PRC. But from a foreign policy standpoint, this means we dictate the terms of the trade deal -- because if we didn't, a Chinese alternative would pop up.

I know, because they really don't need an advisory board to tell them exactly what kind of garbage the world will buy from them.
