Here are five things you must know for Tuesday, Nov. 22:
1. -- President-elect Donald Trump said the U.S. will withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a move that would end a multi-national trade deal nearly seven years in the making, as soon as he takes office in the White House.
Trump addressed the nation for the first time since his victory in the Nov. 8 election in a Youtube message that was aimed at updating the transition of power in the White House and his plans for the first 100 days in office. George W. Bush and Barack Obama also addressed the nation during their transition to power.
"On trade, I'm going to issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country," Trump said. "Instead, we will negotiate fair bilateral trade deals that bring back jobs and industry back onto American shores."
Withdrawing from the trade deal was one of six "executive actions" Trump said he would take on day one based on his core principles: putting America first. Others on that list were reforms on energy, regulation, national security, immigration, and ethics.
2. -- U.S. stock futures and European and Asian shares posted solid gains Tuesday, getting a lift from a continued rally in oil and after Wall Street closed at record highs.
