President Donald Trump is fixated on deficits as measures of how the U.S. gets the short end of the stick in trade deals.

If you add up all the 'BAD's only' we see 9 other nations we trade with is out of balance way more.
All these 9 nations import 40% or less US made products.
US imports 855B but only exports 428B to these 9 nations. or 66%| 34% This is a total of 16% less U.S. exports to them 9 nations
=66.5627% difference here
Mexico we trade 528B and are only exporting 6% less to them. Way better than 16% and more btw. There is no mention of remittances to Mexico 24B? I think. So why is Mexico the bad guys here? China is the real BAD guy, But they have nukes and we owe them a shit load of money too.
