The speech by Senator Sessions is the subject of this essay, however I want to remind you that international trade agreements have clauses in them that create legal obligations not anticipated by the citizenry of America.
For example many agreements allow for regulatory obligations that are not subject to review and approval by our Congress.
As Lawrence Kogan has said here and elsewhere, international trade agreements circumvent the sovereign authority of the USA on things like using the precautionary principle (a junk science concept born of fanatic nannyism) in regulatory affairs.

They live and breathe the precautionary principle and hate the risk taking that is required for success as a country or society.
