Why has President Trump withdrawn the US from the TPP or Trans Pacific Partnership?

Trump believes that the deal posed a threat to American workers, and that companies would be able to make products at a lower cost in other countries which were part of the partnership. They would then be able to sell those goods within the US. One of his main policies is to get American companies to make their goods in the US. Economists say that this will be more expensive and so will make goods more expensive for American consumers.
