UAW chief says Clinton told him she would renegotiate NAFTA

by Bernie Woodall, Reuters

(Reuters) - United Auto Workers President Dennis Williams said on Tuesday that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has assured him she would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement if she is elected president.

Williams' comments come as Clinton is under pressure on international trade deals from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and supporters of her former Democratic rival Bernie Sanders.

Clinton has previously said she wanted to rework NAFTA. Her campaign on Tuesday declined to comment on the meeting with Williams.

Williams said he met with Clinton one-on-one prior to the union's endorsement of her in May, when Sanders was still in the race to be the Democratic party's nominee. The UAW has more than 400,000 members.

2. Well, we can make HRC pay for the sins and omissions of Obama

but that hardly seems progressive.

Or we could keep an open mind and at least start with giving her the benefit of the doubt.

3. On this issue I can't.

 

It's not in the platform. Her hubs signed it. She promoted it during her tenure as SOS. I will vote for her because she's running against a LUNATIC but will not have high expectations on this issue. Sorry.
