Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain on Tuesday called for a EU-U.S. trade pact, saying exports were a bright spot in the U.S. economy.
"I will work together with our allies, our traditional allies, and we will come up with hemispheric trade agreements," he told CNBC's Maria Bartiromo. "I'd love to see a U.S.-EU free trade agreement that we will share common values, common principles; we will work together as a community of nations."
The senator also said he was very worried about the softness of the U.S. dollar. "We all know when the dollar weakens the price of oil goes up," he said.
