Who gives a crap about the media portraying you as "anti free trade" for being against the TPP when Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have already come out against the TPP? Being less libertarian than non libertarians isn't going to win you anything.
And as for your original premise, here's how you should have stated it.
"I wrote the last free trade bill, NAFTA, which included all sorts of crap that undermined U.S. sovereignty like Mexico having internal ports hundreds of miles inside the U.S. and big corporations being allowed to enter into the U.S. without being inspected and thus becoming smuggling tools for drug lords and human smugglers, but he I'm going to label my new bill free trade and you'd better not question it."
