Clinton: When I Said "Open Trade And Open Borders," I Want An Energy Grid That Crosses Borders

|

At the third presidential debate, moderator Chris Wallace asks Hillary Clinton about a statement of hers revealed by WikiLeaks, where she said that "her dream" was to have "open trade and open borders" in the entire Western hempisphere.

"If you went on to read the rest of the sentence," Clinton said. "I was talking about energy. We trade more energy with our neighbors than we trade with the rest of the world combined. I do want us to have an electric grid, an energy system that crosses borders. I think that will be a great benefit to us."

WALLACE: Secretary Clinton, I want to clear up your position on this issue, because in a speech you gave to a Brazilian bank, for which you were paid $225,000, we've learned from the WikiLeaks, that you said this, and I want to quote. "My dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders." So that's the question.

TRUMP: Thank you.

WALLACE: That's the question. Please quiet, everybody. Is that your dream, open borders?

CLINTON: Well, if you went on to read the rest of the sentence, I was talking about energy. You know, we trade more energy with our neighbors than we trade with the rest of the world combined. And I do want us to have an electric grid, an energy system that crosses borders. I think that would be a great benefit to us.
