When Donald Trump campaigned for president in 2016 he pledged to sharply lower the country’s large trade deficits, especially with China, which for years has been the country with the largest trade surplus with the United States.

The Commerce Department reported that the July deficit, the gap between what America buys and what it sells to foreigners, was 18.9% higher than the June deficit of $53.5 billion. It was the largest monthly deficit since July 2008 during the 2007-2009 recession.

...and thus, higher than any trade deficit under Obama.

Joe should bring this up during the debates, just to watch Trump sputter incoherently

I blame Sinclair and FAUX for MAGAt's not understanding that the Orange Galactic Embarrassment is bad for their future income prospects.
