Trump to sign executive orders targeting trade abuses

The goal of the order is to find areas that add to the U.S. trade deficit and eventually negotiate them.

"These actions are created to let the world know that this is a president taking another step to fulfil his campaign promise", Mr Ross said. The order will direct the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretaries of Commerce and Treasury, to impose requirements and strengthen enforcement. Ross added that this is not to say "that everybody on this little list is an evil doer".

"The the anti-dumping consists of dealing with countries that are actually violating the rules". But foreign trade has also created savings by US consumers for helping to reduce prices for clothing, cars and furniture, among other items.

Vowing that the "theft of American prosperity will end", Trump said Friday that his administration "will take necessary and lawful action" to end trade abuses.

"All over America, you're already seeing solutions start to take place".

The orders are modest compared with the dramatic changes in trade policy that Trump promised on the campaign trail. The White House has repeatedly said the focus of any probe should look squarely at the leaks - who gave that information to news organizations, as supporters of the President have blamed unnamed Obama Administration officials.

"Once again, President Trump is keeping his word", Vice President Mike Pence added at Friday's announcement.

Gabriel said the U.S. seemed prepared to give USA companies "unfair competitive advantage" over European producers, even though this violated worldwide trade legislation.

In explaining the timing of the review of existing trade relations, Commerce Secretary Ross claimed that "there never has been this kind of systemic analysis".

During the campaign Trump regularly used China as a punching bag on trade and Navarro has made harsh comments about Beijing and its policies that they both say has caused millions of US job losses. Trump has repeatedly stated that he wants to bolster USA manufacturing create trade deals that work in America's interests.

Still, Ross noted that China is the number one source of the USA trade deficit.

Officials will have 90 days to produce a comprehensive report, country by country and product by product, of how USA goods are affected by current trade agreements.

He told reporters that by not using the enforcement mechanism properly, Americans lose out on funds that could be used for other purposes.

Navarro said the new measures would target USA agencies' failure to collect those duties "like a laser" to collect all anti-dumping taxes owed to the United States and "deter the cheaters".

The orders come just days before a high-level meeting between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump's acting U.S. Trade Representative Steve Vaughn sent Congress the administration's broad framework for renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico.
