Hillary’s lie on her TPP stance was so blatant that even the liberal Associated Press weighted in and had to admit TRUMP was Correct in that she called Hillary the Gold Standard of trade deals.

AP FACT CHECK: Clinton misrepresents stance on Pacific trade
WASHINGTON (AP) — A claim from the presidential debate and how it stacks up with the facts:
HILLARY CLINTON, denying Donald Trump’s accusation that she called the Trans-Pacific Partnership the “gold standard” of trade agreements: “I did say I hoped it would be a good deal.”
THE FACTS: Trump is correct. As secretary of state, Clinton called the deal that was taking shape the “gold standard” of trade agreements, in a 2012 trip to Australia, and championed the agreement in other venues around the world. She did not merely express the hope that it would turn out well.
Clinton flip-flopped into opposing the trade deal in the Democratic primary when facing Bernie Sanders, who was strongly opposed to it.
