Hillary Clinton vows to oppose TPP if elected president

Share

The White House took an important procedural step toward putting the Trans-Pacific Partnership before Congress, one day after Hillary Clinton made clear that she would oppose congressional approval of the trade pact during a lame duck session.

Now look at the number of investigators employed by the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hours Division that year. It appears that Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, will pounce on her reversal when he delivers a speech on trade policy Tuesday afternoon. Over 20 years ago, the US was promised economic prosperity from the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

In her speech, Clinton admitted that, "It's true that too often, past trade deals have been sold to the American people with rosy scenarios that did not pan out", and acknowledged the communities across MI and the country that have seen factories close and jobs disappear. Bernie Sanders, who had stronger anti-trade credentials. If so, she will be the most anti-free trade leader of a major party since World War II.

CLINTON: "Too many companies lobbied for trade deals so they could sell products overseas but instead moved overseas and sold back into the United States".

In his speech in Detroit on Monday, Trump called the TPP a "disaster" and said "a vote for Clinton is a vote for the TPP".

I will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages - including the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Democrat strategist Nicole Graham and conservative columnist Ernie White join "News with Ed" and Graham says "the Clinton campaign needs to reach out to the [Gary] Johnson and [Jill] Stein candidate base".

Ms Clinton says her jobs and tax plans will better help middle-class Americans than Trump's.

Does anyone seriously believe that Congress is going to appropriate the money to pay for the tens of thousands of new inspectors that will need to run around these or other TPP countries - on an ongoing basis - to make sure that treaty provisions are being respected?

Clinton underscored her opposition to the TPP in response to Republican nominee Donald Trump's claim that she would back the 12-nation deal again if she becomes president. We saw this threat laid bare just recently when TransCanada, the company behind the destructive and unnecessary Keystone XL pipeline, announced its plans to use investor-state provisions in NAFTA to sue the USA government for $15 billion in so-called "expected revenues" for the Administration's rejection of the toxic pipeline. Mr Trump moderated his tax plan slightly this week, but still promises hefty cuts for the highest earners, whereas Mrs Clinton wants to tax them more.

Is free trade good for the United States? And they have the collective influence to keep US plaintiffs or defendants a minority of one.
