The text of the U.S.-backed Trans-Pacific Partnership was released on Thursday, revealing the details of a trade pact designed to boost commerce between 40% of the global economy.

Political analysts highlight that the TPP will be a “legacy-defining” achievement for U.S. President Barack Obama, an extremely business-friendly Democrat who has continually thrown workers under the bus as he kowtowed to big business throughout his presidency.

Obama on Trans-Pacific Partnership

U.S. President Barack Obama, who has been TPP since his first term, will have his work cut out to convince enough moderate legislators to see the trade pact ratified.

“The TPP means that America will write the rules of the road in the 21st century,” Obama wrote in an online post. “If we don’t pass this agreement – if America doesn’t write those rules – then countries like China will.”
