Issue of Impeachment Can Harm Trump's Trade Agenda

Friday, 27 September 2019 11:13 WIB



The announcement this week that U.S. President Donald Trump will face an impeachment inquiry led by House Democrats will greatly complicate Trump's efforts to rewrite global trade agreements, experts say.

The issue of impeachment is sticking out a compilation of foreign leaders and their political allies in the country is busy discussing whether Trump will be able to survive with politics.

Said Gary Hufbauer, a fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, "now there is a dark cloud shadowing the efficacy of the government to carry out foreign policy and to pass various bills."

The impeachment process is likely to dominate the attention of members of Congress in Washington, experts say. As a result, it will be difficult for the government to get congressional approval for various trade plans it wants.

This will also make a number of foreign governments, especially China, to assess whether Trump will be able to complete his term of office or whether he will lose the 2020 election.

Said Lester Ross, from the Office of American lawyers in Beijing, "a leader's political vulnerability will weaken his position in holding diplomatic negotiations."
