Clinton Falsely Claims She Had No Role In TPP

- September 26, 2016

Clinton Claimed At The Debate That She Played No Role As Secretary Of State In The Trans-Pacific Partnership. CLINTON: "That is not accurate. I was against it once it was finally negotiated and the terms were laid out. I wrote…" TRUMP: "You called it the gold standard. You called it the gold standard of trade deals. You said it was the finest deal you've ever seen. You heard what I said about it and you were against it." CLINTON: "Donald, I know you live in your own reality, but that is not the facts. The facts are I did say, I hoped it would be a good deal. But when it was negotiated, which I was not responsible for, I concluded it wasn't." (Hillary Clinton, Presidential Debate, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY, 9/26/16)

The Reality: Clinton Was "One Of The Leading Drivers Of The TPP When Secretary Of State" And Took "A Leading Part In Drafting" The Trade Deal

As "One Of The Leading Drivers Of The TPP When Secretary Of State," Clinton Spoke In Favor Of TPP At Least 45 Times. "But as members of the Obama administration can attest, Clinton was one of the leading drivers of the TPP when Secretary of State. Here are 45 instances when she approvingly invoked the trade bill about which she is now expressing concerns." (Jake Tapper, "45 Times Secretary Clinton Pushed The Trade Bill She Now Opposes," CNN, 6/15/15)

As Secretary Of State, Clinton Took "A Leading Part In Drafting The Trans-Pacific Partnership." "She's pressed the case for U.S. business in Cambodia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other countries in China's shadow. She's also taken a leading part in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade pact that would give U.S. companies a leg up on their Chinese competitors." (Elizabeth Dwoskin and Indira Laksmanan, "How Hillary Clinton Created A U.S. Business-Promotion Machine," Bloomberg, 1/10/13)

In November 2012, Clinton Said The "TPP Sets The Gold Standard In Trade Agreements" And Includes "Strong Protections For Workers And The Environment." CLINTON: "So it's fair to say that our economies are entwined, and we need to keep upping our game both bilaterally and with partners across the region through agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP. Australia is a critical partner. This TPP sets the gold standard in trade agreements to open free, transparent, fair trade, the kind of environment that has the rule of law and a level playing field. And when negotiated, this agreement will cover 40 percent of the world's total trade and build in strong protections for workers and the environment." (Hillary Clinton, Remarks At Techport Australia, Adelaide, South Australia, 11/15/12)
