Chuck Todd: Clinton ‘Trying to Have It Both Ways’ On Trade

NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd declared that Hillary Clinton is “trying to have it both ways” on trade on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Rundown with Jose Diaz-Balart.”

Todd said, “she’s trying to have it both ways. She’s saying she’d be a no vote on this specific piece of legislation that’s in the United States Senate right now, but she’s also trying to say that she would generally, perhaps be in favor of fast-track if all of the other issues are agreed to. So, look, I think she’s in a real box here, the party’s in one place, the base of the party is in one place, labor’s in one place. What I think in her heart of hearts — I believe Secretary Clinton, the person who was secretary of state, who was trumpeting these trade agreements, who was pushing these trade agreements, calling TPP the gold standard of trade agreements. So, I think that she risks looking like she’s trying to have it both ways, almost a little too cute here, depending on the outcome.”
