    One day after the U.S. Senate confirmed Katherine Tai as the top U.S. trade envoy in a bipartisan vote, she took the oath of office, administered by Vice President Kamala Harris.

    Tai is the first Asian American and first woman of color to hold the position.

    Tai is considered a problem-solving pragmatist, and her nomination by President Joe Biden to be U.S. trade representative drew support from Democrats and Republicans alike.

    She was confirmed on a 98-0 vote and is the 19th member of Biden’s Cabinet to clear the Senate.

    A former trade negotiator and congressional staffer, Tai has vowed to work for a U.S. trade policy that benefits ordinary workers, not just big corporations, and to work more closely with America’s allies to confront an increasingly assertive China.

    At her confirmation hearing, Tai wouldn’t commit to dropping the tax on foreign metals, calling tariffs “a legitimate tool in the trade tool box.″
