    U.S. House Speaker Ryan says NATO is indispensable

    Ryan Says Trump's Trade Policies Put U.S. Economy at Risk

    House Speaker Paul Ryan drew a stark difference between his vision for trade and that of President Donald Trump, rejecting tariffs and warning that pulling out of trade agreements is a threat to the U.S. economy. “We risk having American products locked out of new markets, jobs moved overseas, and a decline in American influence,” Ryan said Thursday at the Economic Club of Washington. Ryan of Wisconsin, who plans to retire after this year, questioned Trump's decision to pull out of Trans-Pacific Partnership, a multinational agreement to cut trade barriers. Ryan said the pact's “broader intent was correct,” to counter China's influence in the region and encourage development according to the U.S. model.
