Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions Supports Trump:And, He's Against the TPP!

Last edited Sun Feb 28, 2016, 09:46 PM - Edit history (2)

This sounds like "Weird News"...but, he announced it at his Alabama Rally and Jeff Sessions gave a rousing speech against the TPP.

This should set some Repub's (and sadly some Dems who support TPP) Hair on Fire!

Mitch McConnell is going to have a rough time with that!

to keep going with her "Flip Flop" where she was "For the TPP...Before she was Against the TPP." Knowing that the Clintons never met a so called "Trade Deal" that they didn't like with NAFTA and the others that sent our American Workers jobs overseas.

I trust Bernie more than Trump to see Jeff Sessions a died in the wool..Repub come out against the TPP gave me hope that the "F..king Thing will Never Pass. I'll give credit for Trump for bringing it up on the Right and even getting that POS Sessions to come out AGAINST it.

Always remember that it was President Obama who once elected urged us Democrats to "work with the Republicans" while his buddy Rahm Emmanuel trashed the Left of the Dem Party before Obama took his oath! And, he didn't let up after Obama was inaugurated. All of us Lefty Activists who voted for Obama were told we weren't worth our vote.

But what we said is now being taken up by Repubs who want to win THIS election is now "coming home to roost" as Bernie and Trump have "THE MESSAGE."

2. Don't believe TPP will hurt us, but Sessions doesn't like Latinos and Asians. He's a Nationalist.

was For It.

Don't try to lump us in as Trump Supporters. Bernie doesn't Support TPP.......and I am a Bernie supporter but glad to see Repub Candidates come out against that Give Away to American Workers proposed by our Sitting Democratic President that I voted for TWICE!

So..bug off!

4. Mainly because they believed crud like it wouldn't be public for 4 years After ratification.

Here we are before ratification, and it is public, although very few have read it. You'd think Sanders, Warren, etc., would apologize for that lie.

7. Haven't made any. A difference of opinion on something that is definitely not certain, is not a lie

Saying the agreement would not be released is.

8. Since neither Bernie Sanders nor Elizabeth Warren claimed the text wouldn't be released for 4 years

and since you claimed that both of them made that claim, then we can conclude, safely, that you lied.

Q.E.D.

U.S. Trade Rep: I've Read Obama’s Trade Deal. Elizabeth Warren is Right to be Concerned.
