2012 Democratic Presidential Nominee
Current President of the United States

Barack Obama

Presidential Candidate Barack Obama


Obama position on Trade Issues

• Obama is of the opinion that global trade is unsustainable if it favors only the few and that America's global trade will be short lived if it favors only some people and not all. He feels that trade should be free and fair for all.

• He feels that NAFTA protects corporate profits; should protect labor.

• Obama fully stands for trade and globalization but is not for CAFTA, the implementation of free trade with Central America. He also feels that trade agreements must deal with matters of fairness such as labor, environmental and consumer safety.

• He is a person who stands for assisting workers who lose globalization's race to the bottom.

• Obama is quite agreeable to Peru Trade as it includes labor and environment protections.

• Obama is of the opinion that it is absolutely not possible to reverse globalization as America will only be worse off due to this. He stated in his speech in Flint that "Rather than fear the future, we must embrace it."

• He feels that America's trade policy should not be ruled by particular interests.

• Obama is for strong labor, safety, and environmental standards on trade.

• Obama strongly feels that the NAFTA was oversold to USA and wants to amend it.

• While was speaking to an AFL-CIO audience he stated, "What I oppose and have always opposed are trade deals that put the interests of multinational corporations ahead of the interests of American workers -like NAFTA and CAFTA and permanent normal trade relations with China."
