"Free trade negotiations between the European Union and the United States have failed, according to Germany's Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel. After three years of talks, an agreement has yet to be reached." http://www.dw.com/en/germanys-vice-chancellor-gabriel-us-eu-trade-talks-have-failed/a-19509401 TTIP was a non-starter from the word 'go', far too much mistrust on both sides. Europeans would be suspicious of any trade deal with the USA and its giant corporations. Have a few reservations about CETA too. Agreements with the USA always seem to be lop-sided, take extradition treaties. You try and extradite someone from over there, damn near impossible?
