Sanders Statement on Obama at Nike HQ

BURLINGTON, Vt., May 8 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after President Barack Obama promoted a job-killing trade agreement at Nike’s corporate headquarters:

“The president at Nike headquarters told us that every trade union in America is wrong, that progressives working for years for working families are wrong and that corporate America, the pharmaceutical industry and Wall Street are right. I respectfully disagree.

“This trade agreement would continue the process by which we have been shipping good-paying American jobs to low-wage countries overseas and continue the race to the bottom for American workers.”
