Obama defends Pacific trade deal

US President Barack Obama speaks during an Organizing for Action Summit on April 23, 2015 in Washington, DCUS President Barack Obama on Thursday faced down criticism from his own supporters over a looming Pacific trade deal, saying he had no intention of selling American workers out. Addressing a community volunteer group, Obama poured scorn on critics who have accused him of pursuing a trade deal with 11 other Pacific nations that would hurt middle class Americans. “If there were a trade agreement that undercut working families, I wouldn’t sign it,” he said. Supporters insist the Trans-Pacific Partnership will level the playing field for American workers, and allow Washington to help write the rules of 21st century global trade rather than its economic rival China.
