Pleased that @realDonaldTrump  and his administration are taking aggressive and proactive action to combat the #coronavirus . This is no time for partisan politics. We need to come together and stay vigilant to prepare and protect the American people.

This is great news for Cincinnati and SW Ohio! These much-needed funds will help revitalize our freight rail infrastructure and pave the way for economic growth across the region.

Joined @MariaBartiromo  this morning to discuss the admin’s response to the #coronavirus  as well as my forthcoming legislation to stop #China  & other foreign govts from stealing our taxpayer-funded research and IP. @MorningsMaria  @FoxBusiness 

Just heard from @OhioAG’s office: no confirmed cases of in #coronaviruso '>Oh #coronaviruso  nor is anyone currently being monitored for the virus. Great news, but we must remain vigilant and take every necessary precaution. I appreciate the Governor's proactive response to this threat.

For yrs, China has been stealing US taxpayer-funded research & intellectual property to fuel its military & economic rise. What’s worse: Our law enforcement agencies did little to stop it. We will soon be introducing new legislation to stop China’s rampant research & IP theft.

@POTUS  made an excellent choice in nominating James Knepp to be the next federal judge in the Northern District. Judge Knepp’s experience as a magistrate judge in Toledo has uniquely prepared him to excel on the federal bench.


This is a stunning development that underscores just how far China will go to steal Americans' personal information and our secrets.

. has laid out a constructive new proposal that contains the basis for a bipartisan agreement. It includes many of the same ideas I have been discussing in bipartisan talks over the past few weeks

The tragedy in Charlottesville this afternoon was domestic terrorism. We must all condemn hatred and white nationalism.

I am calling on @StateDept  to use funding that Congress has authorized to counter Russian propaganda & disinfo:

Today I saw firsthand the critical and innovative research and ground tests for the international space community being done right here in #Ohio  at NASA’s facilities in #Cleveland  and #Sandusky .

China’s systematic theft of U.S. research and intellectual property exploits American taxpayers, undermines our higher ed system and threatens our national security.

China and other nations give billions of $ to U.S. colleges… and these funds often come w/ strings attached that undermine academic freedom & threaten our nat'l security. It's time we shine a light on the billions of foreign $ flowing into our schools.

I will continue to work in Washington to ensure that @NASAglenn  has the support it needs to carry out it’s vital missions for @NASA  and to ensure stability for the more than 3,200 #Ohioans  who work there.

I’m grateful for @realDonaldTrump  & @FLOTUS’s visit to #Dayton  today to show their support for #Ohio  after the tragic shootings this weekend. #Ohio  is hurting, but our communities will continue to lift each other up as we heal.
