Obama facing Democratic Backlash over Trade Deal

Fox News [1] pointed out:

“President Obama is facing a Democratic revolt over ambitious trade initiatives that are dividing the party, leading to tensions with everyone from Senate party leader Harry Reid to liberal icon Elizabeth Warren.”

“In a blunt challenge to the president, Reid even told reporters this week: “I’m not only no, I’m hell no” on Obama’s proposal.”

“At issue is a push for legislation that would ease the way for sweeping trade deals. Obama wants fast-track powers to help move free-trade proposals such as the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership.”
