Dishonest Ad: “Being dependent on China is a threat to our national health and our national security.”
FACT CHECK: During Daines’ time in Washington D.C., he has called the U.S. relationship with China the “most important” one we have – cozying up to China government officials and encouraging “deeper trade ties between the country and the U.S.” – earning himself the distinction of “China’s ambassador in Congress.”
Dishonest Ad: “Senator Steve Daines is working to bring manufacturing jobs and supply chains back home.”
FACT CHECK: In the 1990s, Daines helped a multinational corporation start plants in China while the company eliminated thousands of jobs in the U.S. In the Senate, Daines voted for a tax plan that “could actually make it more attractive” for companies to ship jobs overseas. And in 2015, he voted against a Bring Jobs Home measure which sought to end tax breaks for companies outsourcing jobs.
Tough on China? Fighting for American jobs? History says otherwise about Steve Daines.
