Candidate Clinton not only committed to opposing TPP before and after the election, she said "we need a fundamental rethink of how we approach trade deals going forward."
Details of another secret trade deal have been leaked. This time it's on the Atlantic side. Yet again we see corporations dominating the process, working to get governments out of their way.
