not please like china will write the rules. on friday, republicans and democrats voted to help negotiate trade deals that are free and fair. deals that expand opportunity for workers and businesses. that is good. these kinds of traded deals saying no to lower wages, they are about starting a race to the top for better working conditions and higher wages, stronger environmental protections and a smarter way to crack down on countries that break rules. but that is not all we should do for workers. right now, something called trade adjustment assistance provide support like job training to tens of thousands of american workers each year that were hurt by past trade deals. the kind we will not repeat. republicans and democrats in the senate voted to renew this, but house of representatives will let it expire in a few months, leaving as many as 100,000 workers on their own. for the sake of those american workers and their families, i urge those members of congress who voted against trade adjustment assistance to reconsider. because these smart trade deals are not about growing our e

with assistance they need to defend themselves. china is getting less like a great power and more like a petty bully. time and time again, president obama has failed to take timely action to protect interests and allies. china may be less likely to go operate on priorities he thought were more important, like climate change, and the reckless iran nuclear deal. as a result, china has asserted behavior, cyberattacks, economic espionage, and theft, militarization of one of the most important waterways, and the closing of regional allies and partners. the middle east is descending into chaos, but for the past seven years, president obama has sought to scale back america's involvement in and commitment to the middle east. he has tried to convince us the unfolding crisis in the middle east is simply a local problem, that our nation's core interests are not truly threatened, that the consequence of regional , hundreds of thousands dead in syria, sectarian strikes in iraq, all of these can be mitigated and contains. but the crisis in the middle east has not been contained. it has reached the s
