Trade & Foreign Policy

Fair trade is vital to our nation’s economic future. Trade can create new jobs in exporting industries, expand markets for our businesses, and ensure our workers and businesses are competing on a level playing field in the global marketplace. But for too long, our workers, small businesses, and manufacturers have paid a steep price for an outdated trade agenda. I will continue to fight wrong-headed trade policies that ship jobs overseas and shutter manufacturing facilities. That means fighting back against currency manipulation by trading partners, which the Senate did when it passed a bill that I introduced.  We need a trade agenda that that promotes American workers and helps expand the Made in America label to markets around the world. 

Foreign Policy

Our nation’s foreign policy should be focused on advancing peace and prosperity here at home and abroad.  From advancing nuclear nonproliferation to eliminating the conditions that breed terrorism, to combating global public health challenges I will continue to advocate for policies that promote human rights and democratic policies that are the cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy.
