VA Gov. McAuliffe: Clinton Would Flip-Flop & Support TPP If Elected

HeadlineJul 27, 2016

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe told Politico Tuesday that he believes Hillary Clinton would support the Trans-Pacific Partnership if she is elected president. McAuliffe is a close friend of the Clintons. When asked by Politico if Clinton would change her position and support the deal if elected, McAuliffe said, “Yes. Listen, she was in support of it. There were specific things in it she wants fixed.” Clinton had supported the deal, but then came out opposing it last October amid the close primary against Bernie Sanders, who has long opposed the TPP.
