Bernie Sanders Slams Clinton on TPP: ‘You Have To Have a Position on It’

‘It is very hard for me to understand that any serious candidate for president, Hillary Clinton or anybody else, can duck this issue’

WOODRUFF: “Does it matter -- we said Secretary Clinton has not taken a position. What does it mean if she doesn’t take a position on this before the Congress votes on it?”

SANDERS: “Well, I think that’s a very fair question. And I think the American people will have to decide. If you are asking me why it is that the middle class is disappearing and we’re seeing more income and wealth inequality than any time since the 1920s, trade is a very important factor, not the only reason. And it is hard for me to understand how any serious candidate for president, Hillary Clinton or anybody else, can duck this issue. You can’t. You can be for it. You can be against it. But it is being hotly debated right now in Congress. You got to have a position on it.”
