Quoted @AnaSwanson

Gov. Raimondo declines to say steel and aluminum tariffs will be removed or changed, saying the admin will carry out a broad review of trade policies with allies, aggressively pursue China's uncompetitive trade behaviors and ensure that the exclusions process is swift and fair

Consistent message from the Biden administration: We want to examine and think about these things before we act... https://t.co/SM5q6VDvPP

@SenTedCruz “China’s actions have been anti-competitive, hurtful to American workers and businesses, coercive, and as you point out, they are culpable for atrocious human rights abuses." Says she will use entity list, tariffs and CVD to the fullest extent possible to level the playing field

Raimondo says extending broadband research would be "a very top priority the minute I get into the job." In the pandemic, it's not a luxury, it's how children get their classes, people visit their doctors through telehealth and sign up for vaccines, she says

Heck of a chart. 

In 2020, China surpassed the USA for the first time in foreign direct investment -- a sign of growing economic power.
