Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called on President Barack Obama to make details of the trade pact he is negotiating public a day after Obama said that Warren and other critics were wrong on the facts of the deal. "The government doesn't want you to read this massive new trade agreement. It's top secret," Warren wrote on her website. "Why?
