U.S.President Barack Obama says the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal reached this past week between the U.S. and 11 other nations "promotes American values and protects American workers."

The president said Saturday in his weekly address it took five years to negotiate the agreement because "I wanted to get the best possible deal for American workers. . . Outdated trade rules put our workers at a disadvantage. And TPP will change that."

The TPP agreement - a complex deal affecting about 40 percent of the global economy - includes rules for the international trade of drugs, cars and dairy products.

President Obama said the TPP includes the strongest labor and environmental standards in history."And unlike past trade agreements, these standards are actually enforceable," he said.

TPP supporters say the pact would boost trade and economic growth for participants.U.S. critics of the deal say it does too little to protect American jobs or the environment.They also contend that it would raise the cost of some drugs.

The drug sentiment was echoed by presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.As Obama's former secretary of state, Clinton helped negotiate the pact that she now says she opposes because she is concerned the deal benefits drug companies.She said she is also "worried" about currency manipulation.

Donald Trump, another presidential hopeful, said on Twitter that TPP is "a terrible deal."

Congress must approve the deal in the coming months for it to take effect.President Obama will need bipartisan support, and some opposition lawmakers seem to refuse to approve anything the president supports.

"Right now, other countries charge foreign taxes on goods that are made in America," Obama said."Vietnam puts taxes as high as 70 percent on every car American automakers sell there.Those taxes and other trade barriers put our workers at a disadvantage."

"TPP is going to change that," the president said."It eliminates more than 18,000 of these taxes on American goods and services.And that way, we're boosting America's farmers, ranchers, manufacturers and small business owners -- make it easier for them to sell their products abroad.That's what it means to level the playing field for American workers and businesses."

The president said past trade deals have not always "lived up to their promise" resulting in bad deals for the U.S. that have made "folks suspicious of any new trade initiatives.

"But let's be clear," the president said."Our future depends not on what past trade deals did wrong, but on doing new trade deals right. And that's what the TPP does."

The 12 nations that worked on the TPP are Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam.
