US Reports Biggest Trade Deficit Since The Financial Crisis - Zerohedge

Meanwhile, the countries that should be worried they are about to fall in Trump's trade war sights and resulted in a US trade deficit, included China ($34.7), European Union ($15.3), Germany ($6.7), Mexico ($6.6), Japan ($6.0), Italy ($2.8), OPEC ($2.3), India ($1.9), Taiwan ($1.5), France ($1.4), South Korea ($1.1), Saudi Arabia ($0.4), and Canada ($0.4).
More importantly, it's not just China: the deficit with Mexico increased $1.0 billion to $6.6 billion in February, while the deficit with Germany increased $0.4 billion to $6.7 billion in February.  Meanwhile, the deficit with Canada decreased $1.2 billion to $0.4 billion in February.
Finally, if you want to get Trump really mad, tell him that when stripping away petroleum products - which recently saw record US exports thanks to shale - the US trade deficit has never been greater.
