I’m not sure this is an endorsement I’d want

Barack Obama called John Key to thank him for chairing a TPP session.

David Cunliffe, who like to jump queues to shake the hands of American politicians like Bill Clinton might be a bit miffed, but John Key Is probably miffed too at the news that Obama called him has been broadcast.

The White House has issued a statement about Mr Obama’s phone call, in which he thanked Mr Key for chairing the talks. 

The statement said the President called Mr Key “to thank him for successfully chairing the meeting … and to discuss the productive outcomes”.

“The two leaders welcomed the agreement among leaders that the 12 member nations will work toward the ambitious goal of concluding negotiations this year, and they committed to intensifying efforts to reach that goal.”

The statement said “this comprehensive and high standard agreement is a model for future trade agreements and a promising pathway to our APEC goal of building a Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific”.
