Congressman Dave Trott

Representing the 11th District of Michigan

Foreign Affairs

Rep. Dave Trott is at the forefront of shaping American foreign policy and promoting our nation’s values of liberty and freedom throughout the world. 

Being the leader of freedom and liberty across the globe, America plays a unique role on the world stage.  As the world’s oldest democratic republic, the United States is recognized as a beacon of hope for oppressed and struggling people throughout the world.

Rep. Trott believes that it is critical that America continues its unparalleled position in world affairs and continues promoting human rights and freedom. On the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Trott is working to ensure that other countries abide by these basic human principles, while also advocating for the right to religious freedom of the numerous oppressed minorities in the world.

Like many Americans, Rep. Trott is deeply concerned about the Obama Administration’s continuing negotiations with Iran over their nuclear ambitions. The threat of a nuclear-armed Iran poses a serious risk to the security of America and our allies. Rep. Trott is committed to continue working with his colleagues to ensure that the world does not have to face the danger of a nuclear-armed Iran. 

In the 114th Congress, Rep. Trott served on the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa and the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats.

I, Rep. Debbie Dingell, and many other concerned Members from the Great Lakes region, implored Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to do everything in his power - diplomatic and legal - to protect our Great Lakes. Inaction is too high a price to pay.
June 7, 2017 Press Release
Whether it was the Ottoman Empire’s cold, coordinated campaign to exterminate the Armenian population, or Erdogan’s thugs beating up people outside the United Nations, kicking peaceful protestors in the head in Washington, or shutting down free speech and journalists in Turkey, Erdogan and his high-priced lobbyists have continually tried to rewrite history. We need to call them out and hold them accountable for who they really are – thugs.

The two attacks this morning are part of a disturbing trend specifically targeting Coptic Christians in Egypt that has included attacks on houses of worship, religious cleansing in the Sinai, and now an unsuccessful attempt to murder the Coptic Pope.
