Washington, D.C. – At the outset, President Donald Trump took action to stop travel from China to stem the spread to the United States as long as possible.

Washington, D.C. – Tennesseans want us to incentivize folks to safely return to work. I’ve also been hearing from business owners concerned that people are not returning to work. This is why I joined Senator Rob Portman’s (R-Ohio) Healthy Workplaces Tax Credit Act to help relieve business owners of some of the financial burden associated with creating a safe work environment.
As I write this, billions of dollars from previous coronavirus relief packages sit unspent. We must ensure that any additional coronavirus relief is targeted, and has both the guardrails and flexibility necessary to prevent waste, fraud and abuse.

Washington, D.C. – The coronavirus pandemic has shined a bright light on the many problems that plague our interactions with China. Over the years, Tennesseans have watched Beijing lie, cheat, and steal its way to the top.
This deception puts our songwriters, auto part manufacturers, and countless other industries at a disadvantage well before Beijing’s coronavirus failures made the nightly news. I know that fighting for Tennesseans means unraveling our failed relationship with China.

I’m focused on encouraging American innovation and creating high-skilled job opportunities for the Volunteer State, fighting for Tennessee’s military community, and confronting 21st century threats.
If the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has made one thing clear, it’s that we can no longer rely on communist China.
