Obama Slow Jams Latest Trade Deal Pitch
President declares himself 'down with TPP' despite tricky politics

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, whom Obama endorsed on Thursday, opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership . So too does likely Republican nominee Donald Trump . And lawmakers and candidates of all political stripes are dancing around the question of whether Congress should ever approve it.
