Bernie Sanders said Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “absolutely” needs to take a stand on the Trans-Pacific Partnership on “State of the Union” Sunday.

Sanders told host Brianna Keilar there’s “no fence sitting on this one.”

BRIANNA KEILAR: Trade is a big issue in the Senate and now we are looking towards the House where Republicans, oddly enough, may not have the votes along with Democrats for the initiative of President Obama’s, something you oppose, and you have come out and said this is a terrible idea. Hillary Clinton has not. She is on the fence. Should she take a position?

BERNIE SANDERS: Absolutely. You can’t be on the fence on this one, you are either for it or against it. No fence sitting on this one. Here is the reality. When we talk about why the middle class is disappearing and why the gap between the rich and everybody else is growing wider, you have to talk about disastrous trade agreements that have allowed corporate America to shut down in this country to move to China, Mexico, and other low-wage countries.
