Media Zeroes In On Nike In Obama's Free Trade Speech
Obama delivered his pitch for a free trade deal at Nike headquarters Thursday — a location that rubbed some commentators the wrong way.By Ben Lawson | May 8, 2015
"Nike announced with the Trans-Pacific Partnership it would make new investments in advanced manufacturing, not overseas but in the United States and far more Nike products would be made in the U.S.A. And that means thousands of more jobs." President Obama said.
On Friday, Obama traveled to Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon to tout his plans for the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP free trade agreement in Asia.
The TPP is being billed as one of the biggest trade deals ever, but the choice of locale for the speech is almost getting more play than the content of the speech itself.
