BERLIN (Reuters) - The free trade deal being negotiated between the European Union and the United States is not dead despite Republican Donald Trump winning the U.S. presidential election, a spokesman for the German government said on Wednesday.
Asked at a news conference if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) was dead, Steffen Seibert said: "No".
During the run-up to the election Trump made attacks on international trade deals a cornerstone of his campaign, saying they have cost U.S. jobs.
