Long before communist China unleashed a virus on the world, they were cheating on trade, stealing our intellectual property and wreaking havoc on our foreign policy aims. A rising, aggressive China threatens our interests, at home and abroad. For America to remain the global leader in job creation and innovation we need public leaders who aren’t afraid to challenge China. As your U.S. Senator, I will be a leading voice in holding China accountable, advocating for the return of America’s strength in the world and leaving no doubt among our allies that the US will stand up to China’s aggression. I will also oppose any trade deal that does not protect our workers, manufacturing and American innovation.
