Q Specifically about Secretary Clinton’s comments last night about the TPP. She said that “in looking at it, it didn’t meet my standards.” And I’m just wondering, is it possible that she has actually looked at it? Because I thought it hadn’t been posted or been made public yet.

MR. EARNEST: Yes, I noticed that, too.

The White House cheered the Democrats who participated in Tuesday’s presidential debate, but noted its differences with Hillary Rodham Clinton on trade.

“It was encouraging to see Democratic candidates putting forward their own vision and values and priorities for the country, in large part vowing to build on the important progress that’s been made over the last seven years,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday at his daily press briefing.

As for Clinton opposing the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement without having read it yet — the text still hasn’t been released — Earnest said, “Yeah, I noticed that, too.”

More broadly, Earnest said “we strongly disagree” with Clinton and the other candidates who oppose the TPP, saying it would raise worker standards, lower taxes on exports and counter China. And he kept noting that the administration has spent five years negotiating the deal, which dates back to Clinton’s tenure as secretary of State.

It is difficult to find a source story for this that isn't a rightwing rag, so I included a link to the actual press conference. Seems the mainstream media again ran interference for her on this one.
