WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding President Obama's speech in Tampa, Florida on Latin American trade policy:
"Today, the Campaigner-in-Chief will attempt to convince Florida voters that he has taken the lead on trade with Latin America. In reality, President Obama's irresponsible policies have weakened our relationship with Latin America to the detriment of the national economy and Florida's economy," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
"For two years, the president bowed to pressure from union bosses and refused to submit the Colombian and Panamanian Free Trade Agreements to Congress, putting Florida exports at risk and killing job opportunities for Americans.
"President Obama's disingenuous and downright false rhetoric is the trademark of a failed presidency. Successful incumbents can run on their records, but because of his failed policies, President Obama is running from his record."
