Fiorina: TPP Has ‘Trap Doors’ On Environment, ‘Complicated, Multi-Party Agreements Are Not In Our Interest’

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina argued that the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s (TPP) “trap doors” on the environment shows that “extremely complicated, multi-party agreements are not in our interest” on Tuesday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.”

Fiorina said passages of TPP that deal with previous environmental agreements show why “these extremely complicated, multi-party agreements are not in our interest, because buried in the 5,000 pages negotiated with 12 other countries, are trap doors.” She added, “trade agreements are far better when negotiated bilaterally, as opposed to multilaterally. Secondly, it makes no sense to lock this country in to a multilateral agreement, negotiated over years in secret, that has trap doors, such as you just described.”

“his passion comes when he’s talking about climate change. He has no passion when he’s talking about defeating our real enemy, which is ISIS.”

She continued, “And while he talks about let’s be accurate and factual about Planned Parenthood, okay, here’s some facts. Planned Parenthood acknowledged, just a couple weeks ago, that they will no longer take compensation for the sale of body parts, or as they call it, fetal tissue. I would call that an admission. Factually speaking, Planned Parenthood funnels millions of dollars in political contributions, as a taxpayer-funded organization, to pro-abortion candidates.”
