Hillary Clinton comes out against TPPA

08/10/2015

In an interview with PBS News Hour, Clinton said she was "worried" about the TPPA, which would cover 40% of the global economy and 800 million consumers.

 "I'm worried about currency manipulation not being part of the agreement. We've lost American jobs to the manipulations that countries, particularly in Asia, have engaged in,"Clinton said.

"I'm worried that pharmaceutical companies may have gotten more benefits and patients, and consumers fewer."

"I think that there are still a lot of unanswered questions." 

The deal now has to be ratified by the various parliaments and Clinton's opposition will be a blow to President Obama's hopes of getting it past American legislators.
