New Democrats support a pro-growth, pro-worker trade agenda that puts American jobs first. We need to set the rules for the global economy, not have them set by others. In doing so, the United States should focus on championing the economy of the future, not the economy of 50 years ago. Being actively engaged in global trade allows us to lead geo-politically; grows our economy and expands opportunity; exports our goods, services, and values; and levels the playing field for American workers, businesses, and farmers. President Trump’s unilateral trade actions are fueling a trade war that is disrupting markets, raising prices, and costing American jobs. This could jeopardize our nation’s security and lead to retaliation from other countries against American made goods and services.
