The mass-murdering communist dictatorship enslaving Vietnam is urging the U.S. government to join the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a pseudo-free trade regime that was set to ensnare a dozen nations around the Pacific rim under a single regional governance structure beyond the reach of voters.
