WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will hold a meeting at the White House on Friday with experts from both political parties to discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Friday.

The meeting will include four former Secretaries of State -Henry Kissinger, James Baker, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright - among others.

Earnest said the meeting will focus on the Pacific Rim trade deal and setting the "rules of the road" on trade in Asia.
