US President Donald Trump has described the Trans-Pacific Partnership with Australia, New Zealand and nine other Pacific nations as a job killing disaster.

Mr Trump, speaking at a raucous rally of supporters in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday, gloated how he withdrew the US from the TPP on one of his first days in office.

"I followed through on my promise to withdraw from the job killing disaster known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership," Mr Trump said to loud cheers.
