New Balance Endorses Donald J. Trump | Trans-Pacific Partnership

New Balance has reportedly endorsed Donald Trump and his plan to overturn the Trans-Pacific Partnership. New Balance is one of several shoe companies that makes some of their products in the United States. Not long after Trump won enough electoral votes to snag the election, WSJ reporter, Sara Germano, tweeted a statement from New Balance.

How does this support effect partnerships and business?
