WASHINGTON – Today the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a new video entitled “The Gold Standard,” which uses never before seen footage uncovered by the RNC to highlight Hillary Clinton’s brazen and transparent flip-flop on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.
As Secretary of State, Clinton heaped praise on TPP, calling it the "gold standard in trade agreements," and publicly supported the trade deal at least 45 times. Now that she's campaigning for President, Clinton has shamelessly flip-flopped, claiming she opposes the very same trade deal she fought so hard to promote as Secretary of State.
“Hillary Clinton’s flip-flop on TPP is the wholesale abandonment of a central priority of hers as Secretary of State,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Clinton’s willingness abandon core positions on a whim just because it’s politically expedient, is exactly why the American people struggling in the Obama-Clinton economy can’t trust that she’s fighting for them.”
“This November, voters will have a choice between a Washington insider who will say or do anything to get elected to distract from her stale ideas, or a proven business leader with the vision and experience to create jobs, grow wages, and bring prosperity back for all Americans.”
See the accompanying brief from RNC Research, which extensively documents Clinton’s inconsistencies on TPP.
