WASHINGTON — President Obama said Thursday there could be enough bipartisan support in Congress to get approval for Trade Promotion Authority, which will help his administration wrap up negotiations on an Asia-Pacific commercial pact and put more muscle behind ongoing trade talks with the European Union.
Obama, who made remarks to chief executive officers, members of his cabinet and governors from several states attending the President’s Export Council meeting Thursday, said he needs TPA, formerly called “fast-track authority,” since under its rules, Congress does not have the ability to amend trade pacts negotiated by the executive branch and can only vote up or down on them.
