Obama has been a vocal critic of free trade agreements, though he says he is in favor of free trade.

· Work to renegotiate NAFTA, the free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.

· Opposes the free trade agreements with South Korea and Colombia.

· Use trade agreements to spread good labor and environmental standards around the world.

· Supports steep tariffs on imports from China if the Chinese keep their currency from rising.

· Increase and expand assistance offered to workers who lose jobs due to trade and create flexible education accounts to help workers retrain.
