The US trade deficit has been a near-constant target for Donald Trump – both on the campaign trail and in the White House. But now that it has risen 12% during his first year in office, should we worry?

BBC-Do a story on the Hillary Clinton/FBI corruption in their attempt to influence a US election
and undermine an incoming US President. You can talk about Clinton paying $10 mill to Fusion
GPS to concoct a phony Trump/Russia collusion narrative to destroy Trump that the liberal media
has been feeding the public 24/7 for over 1 year. This is the biggest scandal in US history. and the
liberal mainstream media is ignoring, Why? Because all of them are liberals!

Phil Dobson says:

Let's get one thing straight 1930s depression was caused by super high interest rates / Loan Sharks & their dual nationality billionaire descendants relentlessly push for interest rates up & "free trade" to push workers faster or be unemployed & we'll produce it in another free trade country. So what about the extra miles everything has to travel to its marketplace the important thing is more billions for the dual nationality billionaires

Chad Rushing says:

Should the BBC stop being a propaganda network? Who needs facts when the globalist agenda is threatened.

Fawad Nabi says:

Asa Coe says:

Donald drumpf our Cheeto in Chief is a disgrace to the American people. This coward is trying to turn our country into a plutocracy. Dark days ahead.

eric lovelace says:

bbc – "we hate Trump but we worshipped the very ground that Obummer walked on but by the way we are completely politically neutral" LOL. Defund this commie 'news' outlet – It's not fit for purpose.

Eva P says:

To let a "businessman" like Trump decide on the country's money should be the most insane happening ever in US history. His main qualifications are bankruptcies and boasting.The deficit increased to record high $ 660 billion in 2017 and Trump will increase it to $ 1 400 billion this year, according to JP Morgan Chase. His businessidea is funding and wasting money by pawning all assets and invest in projects that monuments his own ’greatness’ and racist agenda – like the old fashion wall, the military, isolation of the US by breaking trade relations, discrimination, propaganda news, elimination of opponents, deregulation of rules that limits his power, tax cuts for the rich elite etc. … Just destruction, poverty and a crashed Republik can be expected by Trump, it should be obvious by now. His tweets speak for themselves, no other source of information is necessary.

B Campos says:

No kid walked in the background in the interview… sad.

Joshua Koenig says:

2 Corinthians
Chapter 11
2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Perfect Strength By Perfect Weakness

I go back to the Word of God, I seen what It done back there. (And then, God, let us all go back there.) And with the weakness of no support of organization, no support of denominations, no support of the ecclesiastical setup, but in simplicity and the power of the Holy Spirit that fell on Pentecost, with the same message that Peter had on the day of Pentecost, "Repent, every one of you, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins"… You won't be harnessed up like a bunch of these theologians with your collar turned around and a Bachelor of Arts degrees, but, brother, you'll have something in your hand. And long as the Spirit of God will get into that Word, It'll conquer and bring back them lost sheep that's gone astray. Amen. Confess our weaknesses. Throw off your Doctor of Divinity. Throw off your know-it-all, your membership. Strip yourself before God, spiritually speaking, and call yourself unworthy. Then God can go to using you. Just don't say it from your mouth, bring it from your heart.

When they talk about our exports to Mexico, a big chink of these exports are materials being shipped there by US companies to make their cars, appliances, etc. and then the finished product is shipped back to the US to sell. Mexico is a poor 3rd world country where the average wage is 5 dollars per day, so these people can't afford to buy our things. NAFTA, which was signed by Bill Clinton, was all about allowing US companies to move to Mexico for cheaper labor and have their products shipped back here without tariffs. Trump is thankfully renegotiating NAFTA and if he doesn't get us a good deal, he plans to cancel the deal. In the NAFTA agreement, any president can cancel it at any time.

Gordon Watson says:

The BBC is an anti-human, Fake 'News' organisation.
