MAKING GOOD ON VOW? Trump set to sign executive orders aimed at trade abuse crackdown


President Trump on Friday is set to sign a pair of executive orders aimed at cracking down on trade abuses, administration officials said.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the first order calls for the completion of a large-scale report to identify “every form of trade abuse and every non-reciprocal practice that now contributes to the U.S. trade deficit.”

Officials will have 90 days to produce a country-by-country, product-by-product report that will serve as the basis of future decision-making by the administration on trade-related issues, Ross told reporters at a Thursday night briefing.

“It will demonstrate the administration’s intention not to hip-shoot, not to do anything casual, not to do anything abruptly, but to take a very measured and analytical approach, both to analyzing the problem and therefore to developing the solutions for it,” he said.
