During the 1999 debate over Permanent Normal Trade Relations with China President Bill Clinton said, ‘In opening the economy of China, the agreement will create unprecedented opportunities for American farmers, workers and companies to compete successfully in China’s market. WRONG: Our trade deficit with China has increased from $83 billion in 2001 to a record breaking $342 billion in 2014.
I know that it is a hopeless undertaking to debate about fundamental value judgements. For instance, if someone approves, as a goal, the extirpation of the human race from the earth, one cannot refute such a viewpoint on rational grounds.

Countries with more gender equality have better economic growth. Companies with more women leaders perform better. Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women enact more legislation on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support.

During the debate over NAFTA President Clinton said, ‘I believe that NAFTA will create a million jobs in the first five years of its impact.’ WRONG. According to the Economic Policy Institute, NAFTA has led to the loss of more than 680,000 U.S. jobs. I voted against NAFTA and other bad trade agreements and am fighting to stop the TPP.
This rhetoric that Donald Trump is used is very consistent with rhetoric he’s used on the campaign trail for a long time now. He’ll always say – and you look – you can look at the past transcripts of his old speeches. He’ll always say, I’m in favor of trade; trade is great, but these deals – NAFTA, TPP, the South Korean Free Trade Agreement – are all terrible.
