​​​​​​​     Trump Score Card

TRADE:B





As President Trump first took office the total U.S. trade deficit was $502 billion. What will Trump do to attempt to cut the trade deficit. 



1/23/17: President Trump signed an executive order withdrawing US from TPP trade deal. Like Hillary Clinton stated, President Trump also expressed he was not in favor of The Trans-Pacific Partnership. There are several reasons why they believe TPP is not a good trade deal for America. The United States lost 5 million manufacturing jobs between January 2000 and December 2014 and our current trade deficit is close to $500 billion annually (3% of our GDP) due to poor trade deals such as TPP.
