U.S. President Obama speaks during a visit to the Department of Agriculture in WashingtonBy Julia Edwards and Krista Hughes WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama kicked off a sales pitch on Tuesday for a 12-nation Pacific Rim trade agreement that has sparked concern among some lawmakers and won a lukewarm initial response from business groups. Although ultimate winners and losers from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are still unclear, some Republicans are worried about its impact on industries including dairy, tobacco and pharmaceuticals, highlighting the battle ahead to win votes. "I’m also confident that the case to be made for why this is good for America is sufficiently strong," Obama told agricultural and business leaders gathered at the U.S. Agriculture Department.

U.S. President Obama speaks during a visit to the Department of Agriculture in WashingtonPresident Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal will "raise the bar" on concerns about currency manipulation with a set of principles to measure the problem. "Now it is not an enforceable provision in the same way that for example, violations of labor standards or environmental standards will be," Obama said in an interview with the U.S.-based radio program, Marketplace. "Keep in mind that when it comes to setting up these trade rules internationally, our goal is constantly to raise the bar, and you're never going to get 100 percent of what you want right away," Obama said in the interview.
