What do the Democratic Candidates Believe About Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)?
Y = for N = against
Hillary Clinton: N
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended her opposition of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in the first Democratic debate of the 2016 race.
Clinton announced last week that she no longer supports the international trade deal, despite supporting it while serving as secretary of state — once calling it the “gold standard.” CNN anchor and debate moderator Anderson Cooper picked up on those words and asked Clinton about her reversal at the Oct. 13 debate in Las Vegas
Bernie Sanders: N
WASHINGTON, Oct 5 (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said he was disappointed by the Trans-Pacific Partnership Pacific trade deal reached on Monday, saying the pact would cost U.S. jobs and hurt consumers.
“Wall Street and other big corporations have won again,” the U.S. senator from Vermont said in a statement, vowing to “do all that I can to defeat this agreement” in Congress.
