Trade Deficit Hits Highest Level Since 2008

It skipped from Bush to Donald the Conald. What happened with all that “America First” crapola. This is a larger trade deficit than Obama experienced in 8 years in office.

The U.S. trade deficit surged to its highest level since 2008 during President Trump’s first year in office despite his vow to lower the gap and crack down on unfair competition.

The nation's trade gap in goods and services jumped 12.1 percent to $566 billion in 2017, up $61.2 billion from 2016, the highest level since the deficit hit $708.7 billion in 2008, the Commerce Department said Tuesday.

For the year, imports surged to $2.9 trillion, easily eclipsing $2.3 trillion in U.S. exports.

Notably the U.S. deficit in goods soared last year to a record-high $375.2 billion with China, a nation that Trump has both demonized and praised on trade during his tenure.
