Restoring a Values-Based Foreign Policy

From the climate crisis, to rising authoritarianism, to the deliberate spread of weaponized misinformation online, the greatest threats to our democracy and planet are global in nature. Yet the Trump Administration deliberately tears down international institutions and values that are our best tools and which America spent decades building up, quitting the Paris Climate Accord, gutting our diplomatic corps, and cozying up to dictators while alienating true friends and allies.

I believe America must prioritize diplomacy over threats, bluster, and the unilateral use of force. Repairing our alliances overseas and restoring the State Department and intelligence community here at home must be at the forefront of U.S. foreign policy.

Moreover, as a member of Congress, I will sponsor and support the War Powers Resolution to end the blank check too many presidents have abused to entangle Americans in unending conflicts.
