You would think this would be one thing Obama would be consistent on.
Check it out:
Right before he publicly attacked the Confederate Flag as a “symbol of slavery,” President Obama quietly removed an “anti-slavery” provision from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.
“The provision, which bars countries that engage in slavery from being part of major trade deals with the U.S., was written by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.),” The Huffington Post reported. “At the insistence of the White House, Menendez agreed to modify his language to say that as long as a country is taking ‘concrete’ steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor, it can be part of a trade deal.”
“Under the original language, the country that would be excluded from the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership pact is Malaysia.”
“Why, in the year 2015, is the White House teaming up with Republican leaders essentially to defend the practice of slavery?” The Huffington Post added.
It was only a month later that President Obama attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery.”
