Hillary Clinton Flip-Flops, Will Oppose Obamatrade

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is flip-flopping on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Deal. Clinton came out Wednesday against the “Obamatrade” agreement,  despite previously supporting the measure 45 times.

Clinton’s campaign has had a rough few months with labor unions, who are strongly opposing the deal on protectionist grounds. Outsourcing of jobs became a significant issue in the Midwest during the Republican-dominated 2014 midterm elections.

AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka threatened to sit out the election if Clinton did not end up opposing Obama’s trade deal. Vice President Joe Biden – who is courting Big Labor support in his potential run – would now have to publicly repudiate his own White House if he decides to oppose the deal.

But Bernie Sanders is getting the most support from the anti-TPP Left on social media platforms including Twitter and Reddit, which is driving his small-donation campaign, which recently received its one millionth individual donation.
