Utah understands the benefits of foreign trade. I support free and fair trade with other countries.  In some instances, nations or companies have cheated on trade agreements and the United States should take punitive action against them. Further, trade agreements must benefit American workers who have been disproportionately impacted by automation and past trade actions.

I oppose broad-based tariffs, but I will support focused tariffs on well-documented cheaters who subvert American companies and workers. As trade deals are negotiated, I will fight for policies that open markets for Utah’s agriculture exports such as the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
