Trump has talked about rejoining the deal before, but only if the US gets substantially better terms - which would take even more diplomatic wrangling to secure.
The actions of the Administration will provide USA agriculture and food producers with access to markets worth billions in trade. Parker says New Zealand is open to the idea of the USA joining but "it remains theoretical at this point".
The news drew a rebuke from opponents of the multilateral trade pact. "The U.S. standard is 75 years, and the other countries accepted the U.S.in the TPP, but now they've reversed to the standard 50". Larry Kudlow, Trump's new economic advisor, told times in a statement that "this whole trade thing has exploded".
"It is an agreement so delicate, like something made of glass", he said.
Mr Trump ordered his staff to evaluate rejoining "on our terms", according to accounts from the meeting. Trump rooted his campaign in correcting what he saw as unfair trade practices that were hurting American workers and manufacturers, and, very soon after taking office, Trump signed an executive order that withdrew the USA from the partnership.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the 11 nations "fought hard to get the final agreement that we have now before us".
President Donald Trump is open to the United States negotiating an entrance into a Trans-Pacific Partnership, said Sen.
US Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican who participated in a meeting with Trump on Thursday where he spoke about rejoining the deal, said: "He multiple times reaffirmed the point that TPP might be easier to join now". The Office of the US Trade Representative on April 2 proposed a list of products imported from China that may be subject to additional tariffs (mostly 25 percent increases).
But when 11 remaining countries inked the final deal - now known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) - in March, the agreement lacked numerous provisions US negotiators had long argued to see included.
Parker said other countries have also expressed an interest in joining, including Colombia, South Korea and Britain. New Zealand's trade minister said his country is not blind to the benefits of free trade with the world's largest economy, but USA participation remains theoretical.
Trump is seeking to reassure the lawmakers on proposed China tariffs. Trade advisers say the department could use a program known as the Commodity Credit Corp.to purchase potentially billions of dollars of crops from American farmers harmed by tariffs.
Trump was discussing the Chinese threat to slap tariffs on soybeans and other crops grown in rural America.
"Our farmers and ranchers are struggling, so we need to be really careful here that we open up markets", Sen. "Japan would like to listen to the U.S.'s view", said Suga, the Japanese official.
Mattis said he was not aware of any USA losses, and added, "Right now we have no additional attacks planned".
Kennedy says what was presented as a tariff on foreign steel has effectively become a tax on USA manufactures such as his company.
Tyson Fury: 'I could beat Anthony Joshua tomorrow night'
But it's very much clear Fury is working his way towards reclaiming his place as the king of the heavyweight division. Who do you think Tyson Fury will fight next? "I wouldn't call them demons, I would call them a good time".
