Donald Trump and Barack Obama meet at White House – BBC

They were supposed to meet for 10 minutes.  Instead they met for 90.

Later in the day, the (expected to be) Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer announced that the horrific Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal is dead.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership is dead, Schumer tells labor leaders – Washington Post

Perhaps it’s just coincidence.  Perhaps Trump made it clear that Obama will be frittering away valuable time at the end of his Presidency by pursuing it only to have it immediately ended by a President Trump.  We’ll probably never know, but one thing I do know is that the TPP dying a sudden death is the 2nd big victory in a week for this country.
