Buchanan: ‘Enormous Power’ of Transnational Corporations Pushing Trade Deal

On this weekend’s broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” conservative commentator Pat Buchanan sounded off on the looming Trans-Pacific Partnership legislative battle and explained that this trade deal isn’t a benefit to the American people as much as it is one to benefit corporations seeking lower costs.

“The only reason these trade deals go through is not because the country loves them or believes in them, it is enormous power of the transnational corporations in America who need these deal to move their factories and plants overseas where they can produce more cheaply, get rid of the American workers, get rid of the American regulations and bring their goods back here,” Buchanan said.

“This is a battle that is going to go on and on and on,” he added. “Frankly it consumed us in the 19th century more than any issue, except for slavery.”
