2. Hillary Clinton on Peru Trade
"I support the trade agreement with Peru. It has very strong labor and environmental protections. This agreement makes meaningful progress on advancing workers' rights, and also levels the playing field for American workers. Most Peruvian goods already enter the U.S. duty free, but our exports to Peru have been subject to tariffs."

Hillary said herself that Peru is not NAFTA.

He is attacking her for supporting NAFTA because she said NAFTA was a victory in her own book, just a few years ago.

He supports trade agreements with labor and environmental regulations IN THEM.

Hillary said NAFTA was a victory and it DID NOT have those regulations.

Not complicated.
