With Judy Woodruff of PBS – full video.

Hillary Clinton says she’s “worried” about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, and that she can’t support it given what she knows at this point. The former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate sits down with Judy Woodruff to discuss the major Asian trade pact, gun control, Vladimir Putin and her email.

Judy Woodruff, did you really have to go there?  So ends the integrity of viewer-supported news.  I hope everyone remembers this interview the next time PBS goes on a fund drive. They are not supported by conservatives.  It is the liberals who send them money.

Statements

Hillary Clinton Statement on Trans-Pacific Partnership

I’m continuing to learn about the details of the new Trans-Pacific Partnership, including looking hard at what’s in there to crack down on currency manipulation, which kills American jobs, and to make sure we’re not putting the interests of drug companies ahead of patients and consumers.  But based on what I know so far, I can’t support this agreement.

As I have said many times, we need to be sure that new trade deals meet clear tests:  They have to create good American jobs, raise wages, and advance our national security.  The bar has to be set very high for two reasons.

First, too often over the years we haven’t gotten the balance right on trade.  We’ve seen that even a strong deal can fall short on delivering the promised benefits.  So I don’t believe we can afford to keep giving new agreements the benefit of the doubt.  The risks are too high that, despite our best efforts, they will end up doing more harm than good for hard-working American families whose paychecks have barely budged in years.

Second, we can’t look at this in a vacuum.  Years of Republican obstruction at home have weakened U.S. competitiveness and made it harder for Americans who lose jobs and pay because of trade to get back on their feet.  Republicans have blocked the investments that we need and that President Obama has proposed in infrastructure, education, clean energy, and innovation.  They’ve refused to raise the minimum wage or defend workers’ rights or adequately fund job training.

As a result, America is less competitive than we should be.  Workers have fewer protections, the potential positive effects of trade are diminished, and the negative effects are exacerbated. We’re going into this with one arm tied behind our backs.

I still believe in the goal of a strong and fair trade agreement in the Pacific as part of a broader strategy both at home and abroad, just as I did when I was Secretary of State.  I appreciate the hard work that President Obama and his team put into this process and recognize the strides they made.  But the bar here is very high and, based on what I have seen, I don’t believe this agreement has met it.

  2. Anybody else catch Tweety almost begging Joe(!)Biden to run?
    He said that Joe could run as the “minority candidate”
    David Corn looked like he’d swallowed his teeth.
    What in the Sam Hill is wrong with the Media establishment?

    • You mean the same media that didn’t give a hoot about Biden until a few months ago, when they starting seeing him as the white knight who could save the Dem Party from that awful, Machiavellian Hillary?

    I didn’t see the full interview yet but the clip to me was not what the media is saying. Hillary is rightly concerned about the weak parts of the TPP as it is now but it is not done. It can still be negotiated and the Times etc said the other day it will likely still be tweaked. Ford came out against the same issue.

    She didn’t read it yet. From what she has learned about drugs, taxes, it needs some work. The side agreement for currency is a major issue.

    She is certainly not buckling to sanders or the unions. She said in her book it needed work in those areas. She set the bar back then.

    Hedge and hesitant And leaning towards no unless fixed.

    I am on tiny screen… Not my key board…

    The Biden video is being seen as tasteless by many. It will air during the debates and after. That is not a reason to seek the Presidency.

    Also Barney Frank and Gary Gensler worked on Hillary’s Wall Street plan due out soon.

    RISE HILLARY RISE.

        Just watched. She made Andrea Mitchell seem cosy and fuzzy.

        Lord. She answered the Syria,Asia and Putin questions three times and still didn’t seem like Judy heard her.

        She tried to make Hillary a monster. It made her look awful not Hillary.

        • I know people are tossing confetti and throwing streamers because Hillary handled this so well. She did. Of course. I’m glad I am not the only one shocked by Woodruff’s manner. #GoodReasonNotToSupportPBS

            • I think female interviewers want to prove their bona fides to male colleagues–that they’re not in the tank for woman candidate. It’s sad. Aftican Anerican journalists didn’t behave like this when interviewing Obama eight years ago.

  5. Sen.Claire McCaskill did a great job defending Hillary on the Morning Joe show.

    Sen.McCaskill unmasked that the show is hugely biased specifically against Hillary Clinton.

    We all know… Joe is so hugely biased against Dems, and specifically against Hillary Clinton, and when he goes on his rant against Hillary, Mika Brzezinski needs to intercede — and Sen.McCaskill made this exact point.

    Also, when Sen.McCaskill said that Hillary Clinton is the best person for the POTUS job given the issues of the time and the lay of the political landscape, Mike quickly agreed.
