It will result in American capital flowing to a regime that undermines our country. This is not a win.
Marco RubioInstead of holding #China accountable for exploiting American capital markets, this so-called Phase 1 agreement will make sure American capital continues to directly fund China’s state-run economy.

Protesters chanted against Iran’s clerical rulers for a third day, while Ukraine’s foreign minister said five countries would seek action against those responsible.
Marco RubioDerangement Of The Day
@nytimes can’t even report on #Iran protests without equating @POTUS treatment of the press with Ayatollah’s
Remind us again of when he has ordered internet access blocked & live rounds fired at protestors & journalists?
A magnitude-6 aftershock rattled Puerto Rico on Saturday morning, days after temblors caused widespread damage and power outages on the island, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
Marco RubioAnother aftershock in #PuertoRico.
Unlike a hurricane,earthquakes can go on for days/weeks & are difficult to forecast.
My top immediate goal is making sure all emergency aid requested from the federal govt is expedited for delivery.
Troubles flare as Juan Guaido, the opposition lawmaker the U.S. calls Venezuela’s legitimate leader, struggles to keep his legislative post.
Marco RubioWrong! U.S. plans for #Venezuela DID NOT hit turbulence as Maduro tries Assembly takeover. No nation that supports @jguaido legitimacy fell for this sham. On the contrary,#MaduroRegime may have pushed several nations to act more forcefully. politi.co/2FqN4hC via @politico
The killing of General Suleimani, intended as a shot against Iran, could accelerate an Iranian objective: pushing the United States military out of Iraq.
Marco Rubio#Iraq is reconsidering its relationship with the U.S.?
A relationship in which we give them $2 billion a year & they privately beg us to stay & help them fight #ISIS & counter-balance #Iran. But they get to publicly condemn us for protecting our troops?
"... in an effort to make Iraq a platform to attack the U.S. & our allies."
Marco RubioThis wasn’t a coup prevention operation to determine governance of Iraq. Soleimani was actively plotting imminent attacks on Americans. But his coup plans are relevant because its end goal was to turn Iraq into a platform for future attacks on Americans.
Stabbings at a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey Saturday were the latest in a string of seemingly anti-Semitic attacks
Marco RubioWe can’t allow political correctness or politics to ignore when religious ideas or political ideology fosters the ancient evil of anti-Semitism.
How can you stop something without addressing what is causing it.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio tells CNN's Jake Tapper that he doesn't think investigators "did anything wrong" when they applied for surveillance on Carter Page.
Marco RubioThanks for updating your story to reflect this was 18 months ago.
But then why is this news?
Just like #FISA court my view was based on information we now know was false,misleading & incomplete.
Isn’t that why IG report on #FISA abuse is damning?
President Trump dropped a threat to levy tariffs on Brazilian steel and aluminum after the two leaders spoke Friday.
Marco RubioThis was a very good move by @POTUS to end threat of tariffs on #Brazil.
They are a very important partner & a friendly regional & global leader whose OECD membership & role in @NATO partnerships we will be promoting.
The authorities can scan your phones, track your face and find out when you leave your home. One of the world’s biggest spying networks is aimed at regular people, and nobody can stop it.
Marco Rubio#China has created the most comprehensive spying network in history. They can scan phones,track faces & find out when people leave their home.
And from the #DominicanRepublic to Zimbabwe they are exporting this technology to nations all over the world.
t looks like the United States has reached a “phase one” trade deal with China in principle pending President Trump’s approval.
Marco RubioGood questions in this piece:
Goal should be a balanced & stable trade,defense & geopolitical relationship with #China not the dangerous imbalance status quo is creating
And should focus on #China first & deal with trade issues with allied nations later
Marco Rubio will call for the government to protect key industries and workers from the rise of China, further breaking with the libertarian-leaning GOP orthodoxy of the past decades.
Marco RubioThis morning in a speech at @NDU_EDU I will outline the need for a ‘pro-American industrial policy’ to counter #China.
Not a govt takeover of industry.
I argue for public policies that protect our national interest & security.
What does a pro-worker economic agenda actually look like?
Marco RubioI support a free market capitalist economy
A free market will always reach the most efficient outcome
But when the most efficient outcome runs counter to America’s security or our national interest, policy makers must act to protect America
