Ari Fleischer: Hillary Disappeared on Trade Bill Controversy

By    |   Friday, 12 Jun 2015 04:20 PM

Hillary Clinton "chickened out" on weighing in on President Barack Obama's controversial trade bill, says Ari Fleischer, former White House spokesman for President George W. Bush.

"Where was Hillary? Hillary Clinton took no position," Fleischer told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV, speaking of the Democratic front-runner for president.

On Friday, the House of Representatives blocked legislation that would grant fast-track trade negotiating authority to Obama, with Democrats helping to kill the bill despite a personal pitch from the president. The vote was 302-126.

"This was clearly an issue that split the party and Hillary chickened out. It's a pattern where she votes and does whatever is most convenient at any given time," said Fleischer, president of Fleischer Sports.

"She was for the Iraq War when that was popular, she was against the surge when the Iraq War was unpopular.

"She stood on a stage with Elizabeth Warren and said corporations don't create jobs, and now she took no position. Where was Hillary?"
