WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — In October, 12 countries of the Pacific Rim region, including Canada and the United States, reached an agreement on the TPP trade deal, intended to deregulate trade among the signatories, which together make up some 40 percent of the world economy. The deal has yet to be ratified by the signatory countries.
"We should renegotiate trade deals that aren’t working for Americans and reject any agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that don’t meet my high bar of raising wages or creating good high paying jobs," Clinton stated.
In 2012, Clinton praised the pending free trade deal as the "gold standard" for trade agreements, she also expressed support for the deal again in 2013.
The TPP is highly supported by President Barack Obama and his administration. However, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has also called for rejecting the free trade deal.
