HuffPost Pushes Back on Presidential Criticism

The President told a meeting of House Democrats last week that they shouldn’t learn about trade by reading the Huffington Post.

In response, the online publication has consolidated coverage of the TPP, so that readers could see why this trade deal is a bad deal for working and middle class families.

The research director for Global Trade Watch, a CWA ally in the fight to stop Fast Track and the TPP, said the President is trying “to reckon with the difficult reality that his trade agenda directly conflicts with and undermines his stated middle class economics agenda.”
