More good news. Say what you will about Trump being unpresidential but the man (usually) gets results.

A trade deficit exists when a country spends more money annually on imports than it receives from its exports. The United States and many other countries, including Spain, the United Kingdom, Australia, Mexico, Turkey and Brazil, are experiencing deficits. Meanwhile, other countries export more than they import and enjoy trade surpluses. Both China and Russia have large surpluses. Ivestopedia.
