National Security and Defense

According to the Constitution, the most important responsibility of our federal government is to provide for the common defense of our nation. This means ensuring our troops have the resources needed to counter adversaries like China, Russia, and Iran. I will always support our troops who sacrifice so much to protect our nation and defend American values around the world.

One of our top national security threats comes from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The CCP has ripped off American ideas and stolen billions worth of our intellectual property, perpetrated egregious human rights abuses, and taken advantage of the U.S. and our allies -- with no consequences for their actions. Congress must hold China accountable for its malfeasance and repair the damage that has been done. This includes bringing back manufacturing jobs and ending our dangerous reliance on China by bringing critical supply chains back to the United States.
