Boehner says Hillary Clinton should support White House on trade

Boehner holds a news conference on Capitol Hill in WashingtonRepublican House Speaker John Boehner challenged Hillary Clinton on Sunday to help the White House get trade legislation through the U.S. Congress by speaking out in favor of it. Lawmakers are debating whether to give President Barack Obama "fast-track" authority to negotiate deals such as the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Trade is a rare issue on which the White House enjoys support from Republicans, but many Democrats are opposed. "She can't sit on the sidelines and let the president swing in the wind here," Boehner said on NBC's "Meet the Press." Boehner said Clinton, 2016 presidential contender and a former secretary of state, supports both fast-track authority and the TPP, but "she just won't say so." The White House says free-trade deals open up new markets to U.S. exports and help businesses compete abroad.
