    FILE - Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren cut a five-minute video message thanking members of the liberal group CREDO Action for "keeping up the pressure to stop the Trans Pacific Partnership."

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is encouraging members of a progressive group to keep up their fight against the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal ahead of the Democratic party's platform meeting, NBC News reported.

    The TPP is a multinational trade agreement pushed by the Obama administration, which progressives and Donald Trump allies alike feel would harm U.S. workers by driving down labor prices and empowering multi-national corporations.

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is also opposed to TPP, but the trade pact is a top goal of President Obama's.

    Warren, a potential Clinton vice presidential pick and longtime TPP critic, is featured in a 5-minute video message thanking members of CREDO Action, for "keeping up the pressure to stop the Trans Pacific Partnership."
