Snapshot: The U.S. trade deficit is running at an annual rate of $256 billion, up from a record $164 billion last year. The September trade deficit with China, $6.9 billion, was the worst imbalance the United States has had with any country. Under a new deal, Washington would support China's entry into the World Trade Organization in return for greater access to the Chinese market.
Bill Bradley: Supports China's entry into WTO. Supports North American Free Trade Agreement and world trade agreement.
Vice President Al Gore: Supports NAFTA, world trade agreement and further liberalized trade. Says Clinton administration will do more to see that trade agreements don't hurt the environment.
Pat Buchanan: Opposes WTO membership for China, and China's and Japan's access to U.S. market. Opposes NAFTA; would raise trade barriers and tariffs.
Gary Bauer: Opposes China's entry into WTO.
Gov. George W. Bush: Favors China's entry into WTO. Supports NAFTA, world trade agreement and further liberalized trade.
Steve Forbes: Opposes China's entry into WTO _ would admit Taiwan. Supports NAFTA, freer trade generally, and would offer free-trade agreements to Britain and Ireland.
Sen. Orrin Hatch: Favors China's entry into WTO.
Alan Keyes: Calls free-trade agreements ``socialist.''
Sen. John McCain: Favors China's entry into WTO. Supports NAFTA and would seek free-trade agreements with many more countries.
Bradley: U.S. should depend more on international organizations to respond to ethnic conflicts. Five countries are the most important to U.S. interests: China, Germany, Japan, Mexico and Russia.
Gore: Unspecified extra spending on foreign affairs. U.S. should show willingness to ``use our strength _ to lead the world toward what is right and just.''
Buchanan: End foreign aid, except for natural disasters. ``I intend to isolate America from all the bloody territorial, tribal and ethnic wars.'' NATO campaign for Kosovo was ``illegal war on Serbia.'' Would withdraw U.S. from unspecified ``international organizations that imperil our financial stability and economic independence.''
Bauer: Defeat ``isolationist voices.'' ``America is called to use its power abroad.'' Abolish International Monetary Fund.
Bush: Isolationism and trade protectionism are a ``shortcut to chaos, an approach that abandons our allies and our ideals. The vacuum left by America's retreat would invite challenges to our power.'' Move U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Keep sanctions on Cuba. Make aid to Russia conditional on its cessation of civilian killings in Chechnya.
Forbes: Goals include ``free markets, free elections and freedom to worship around the globe.'' Abolish IMF. European Union is ``misguided global institution.''
Hatch: No U.S. involvement in foreign struggles for independence. Backs IMF.
Keyes: Former U.S. diplomat at United Nations calls the international body ``source of pernicious and dangerously naive globalist dreams.''
McCain: ``Despite the isolationist views of a distinct minority, we have every intention of continuing to use our primacy in world affairs for humanity's benefit.'' U.S. should support forces trying to overthrow regimes in Iraq, North Korea and other ``rogue'' states, and use IMF influence to press Russia to settle with Chechnya. U.N. cannot hold ``leading responsibility for international stability, freedom and justice.''
