“Hillary Clinton has changed her position on virtually every defining issue in this race — except for one, and that’s to protect the big banks on Wall Street and go about with business as usual,” O’Malley said on Morning Joe. “I don’t think that’s what the people of our country are looking for.”
The former Maryland governor and Baltimore mayor referenced the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal that he and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have opposed from the start. O’Malley slammed Clinton for changing her position when she came out against it earlier this month. Many Democrats said it was a flip-flop on the part of Clinton, who helped craft the agreement when she served as secretary of state.
“A weathervane shifts its positions in the wind,” O’Malley continued. “Effective leaders do not. I am clear about my principles I know where I stand.”
