Can President Trump’s trade policy actually reduce the US trade deficit and create American jobs over the long term? Currently, the trade deficit with China, as well as with Mexico and Canada, is up as the US continues to import more than it exports. At the same time, hundreds of jobs have been outsourced.
As he tries to dramatically change US trade policy, to what extent can he get support in the Congress for these changes?
Wallach, an internationally recognized expert on trade and director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, will provide an in-depth look at the current administration’s trade policies and what we can expect in the coming months.
