No one will be signing any trade deals with the Orange Kleptocrat. Even if the conman could broker a major deal which stood up to legal scrutiny for the first time in his life, the expectation is that he and many of his cabinet will be prosecuted for corruption in the future.
Anything associated with this administration will be tainted and probably investigated and invalidated.
The EU and China are just spinning the wheels until a legitimate government is in place to do business with.

US Trade Deficit

Source: Bureau of Economic Analysis
The U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis announced today that the goods and services deficit was $49.4 billion in February, down $1.8 billion from $51.1 billion in January.
Reuters:
The U.S. trade deficit fell to an eight-month low in February as imports from China plunged, temporarily providing a boost to President Donald Trump's "America First" agenda and economic growth in the first quarter.

. . .

It sounds like pencils are being sharpened in order to revise up first-quarter GDP forecasts.
The deficit was primarily caused by a $3.1 billion decrease in the deficit with China.

Little to no inflation in the US economy is more evidence that Trump's tariff initiative for the world to move to totally free and fair trade is working. US consumers on Main Street aren't being affected.

Cheerleaders for Failure still dead damn wrong.

STEADY DAMN WINNING.

Why do you keep posting all this rubbish.

The trade deficit with China fell because it was Chinese New Year in February.

China basically shut down for 2 weeks in February hence no exports as previously pointed out to you and you agreed after you posted an article only showing half the story as usual.

Only because you don't like the results.

The Chinese New Year has some effect on trade. Everyone with some understanding of international trade acknowledges that; but economists have pointed out that it has never been as severe as it was this past February. I pointed that out before when you came in screaming bloody murder.

Have a great rest of the week, pal52!

Pal52 he The One who walks on Horse Manure is now professing that he understands whole heartedly the economics in International Trade and I for one believe him as he said it and therefore it must be true.

But I like it when you only see such words as "Everyone with some understanding" well I am part of Everyone and I certianly didnt understand it until I researched it . I asked my daughter and stepdaughter aslo part of "Everyone" and they didnt know either. But once again that is how insecure people want to put you on the defensive declaring that if you dont know you must be ______

You know what to do with rubbish and that is to place it in the bin at the side of the road for pick up

Leaving aside the obvious criminality of the Orange presidency the sheer level of incompetence is mind blowing.

This POTUS is such a pathological liar you can never say for certain what is stupidity or a deliberate lie.

Tariffs are a tax on goods paid by the consumer. Trumpanzees, clearly not a well educated bunch, have adopted the Orange clown's misunderstanding of them.

This is a serious problem because the US is still a country most other democracies, especially in the developing world, take their lead from.

Tariffs are taxes on goods paid by consumers IF CONSUMERS BUY THE GOODS.

Main Street still flourishes in the US despite the tariffs. Inflation numbers since the tariffs went into effect are no more than 1% overall.

Retail sales are UP. Those numbers were just released yesterday. The retail sector is up 3.6% year over year. Total retail sales in March rose 1.6% to over $500 billion. Economists expected only 0.9% growth in the retail sector.

None of those numbers reflect an economy that is being hamstrung by tariffs.

The US is not a democracy. It's a constitutional federal republic.

The lead that the Trump Doctrine is taking is totally free and fair trade. His levying of tariffs is only being used to counterbalance the screwing that the US had taken from supposed allies in trade over decades -- as Trump and trade officials have stated over and over and over again. The supposed allies aren't having it. They like the huge advantages that they have been allowed to realize. These supposed allies don't want free and fair trade.

The US has a socioeconomic makeup that allows the country to be independent of imported goods if consumers so choose to buy American.

That kind of thinking is straight out of Das Kapital. Even Bernie Sanders isn't that far left.

In case you missed it Communism and closed protectionist economic policy failed spectacularly. Even supposedly communist modern counties have accepted that philosophy is a disaster, with the exception of Venezuela and the Orange Kleptocrat's favourite North Korea.

It's truly mind boggling that the US is being lead down a path it sacrificed thousands of lives in multiple wars to avoid.

Wooah! Easy tiger ;)

I've other things to do but I'll try read all that eventually.

However that second last bolded paragraph is an odd one.

Of course the US has a domestic market capable of using only it's own goods. The US invented consumerism. Once upon a time though it was a market for European products, as a colony. After the wars of the early 20th Century the situation was reversed and Europe became a market for US production. Trade has ebbed and flowed since.

The only countries that have attempted to take a zero sum approach to trade deficits were Communist!

We know how that worked out.

The industries that are failing in the US, like coal, steel and ICE automotive are from a past generation. Like blacksmiths their market is shrinking and will eventually vanish.

The Orange moron trying to keep them going by sabotaging future industries is just ****** stupid.

It gives competitors like China a head start and will possibly have a detrimental effect on the US long term.

..but he doesn't give a **** and maybe you don't either.

The Cry Babies of Siam and the professional media have claimed for two years that tariffs would lead to higher prices for US consumers. I have said for that same time period that US self-sufficiency would negate that impact.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis has released year-over-year data that reflects a DECLINE in import prices by 1.5% from the time tariffs went into effect.

us imports.jpg

If you care so much, go read their damn report and educate yourself. Hint: you'll find it in US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Happy researching.

US fuel and energy costs, driven downward by America's increased exploration and production of its own oil and gas resources, has improved America's position considerably. The US is now the largest exporter of energy in the world.

Countries targeted by Trump's tariffs are attempting to subsidize their affected industries and also devaluing their currency. All of these actions are contributing to deflation and economic hardships in those countries.

So the next time the CBoS cheer for Trump failure, understand that his tariffs are working so well that countries are devaluing their currencies at the expense of the currency exchange markets.

Agree to free and fair trade, and the tariffs will be lifted and currencies will be less volatile and less risky.

Importers pay the tariffs, period. If the tariffs persist, and are increased, consumers will suffer, and or, US companies will profit less, sending the market into a tailspin.

A lot of that sounds like advocating Communism. It requires absolute government control of the economy for a country to do what you've suggested.

The complete opposite of conservative American strategy for the last 100 years to spread capitalism.

The Orange sex offender doesn't understand capitalism or international trade and neither do you.
