In this June 11, 2013, photo, President Barack Obama speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington, prior to his upcoming trip to Europe. The proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with Europe will be a top item this coming week in Northern Ireland at the Group of Eight summit of major Western democracies. The deal has raised great expectations of boosting growth and jobs by eliminating tariffs and other barriers that have long plagued economic relations. But there's trouble ahead, both at the negotiating table and from Congress with fellow Democrats, rather than his usual Republican antagonists. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
