Delaney Statement on TPP

“We should all be worried that Senator Warren’s isolationism and Vice President Biden’s backpedaling on trade would make future trade agreements all but impossible.”

FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – John Delaney releases the following statement:

“Just like the Republicans shouldn’t be the party of physical walls to keep immigrants out Democrats shouldn’t be the party of economic walls to keep trade and commerce out. The idea that President Obama’s approach on trade was inconsistent with Democratic values is preposterous. That’s why I’m campaigning for us to re-enter the TPP immediately and help workers, farmers and allow us to compete with China. We’ve seen what happens when we cede the argument to Trump on trade – we lose.

We’ve seen that Trumpian trade wars don’t work. We should all be worried that Senator Warren’s isolationism and Vice President Biden’s backpedaling on trade would make future trade agreements – which we need to continue to grow our economy – all but impossible. “
