Will Trump Fight the US Treasury Over Currency Manipulation Claims? Donald Trump’s position on the currency manipulation provisions in US trade deals could lead him into direct conflict with US Treasury once he assumes the presidency, according Dick Cunningham, a senior international trade partner at Steptoe & Johnson’s Washington office. Speaking on a webinar examining some of the implications of this week’s US presidential election, Cunningham noted that Trump has vowed to kill the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). One reason why Trump has criticised the TTIP in the past, said Cunningham, was because although it contains a currency manipulation provision, the provision is not enforceable.
