Future of TTIP in flux as Trump has said little on trade with Europe

Donald Trump's decisive win in the presidential election leaves the future of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership up in the air as the president-elect has provided little detail on his stance on the ongoing negotiations with the European Union, while his broader anti-trade rhetoric has dampened expectations that the deal will come to fruition.

The impact Trump will have on the broader trans-Atlantic relationship is also expected to go beyond TTIP, as trade policy is interwoven with other foreign economic policies, according to sources.

The European Union for its part has already invited Trump to Europe for an EU-U.S. summit and has called on Trump to help strengthen trans-Atlantic relations.
