US trade gap with China narrows as exports hit five-month high

U.S. Trade Gap With China Narrows as Exports Hit Five-Month High US trade deficit widened in August to $54.9 billion

USA exports in August increased to 207.9 billion dollars, 0.5 billion dollars more than that in July, while imports rose to 262.8 billion dollars, up 1.3 billion dollars from the previous month, the department said.

The overall US trade deficit on Friday widened to 54.9 billion USA dollars in August amid protracted trade tensions, its figures showed. The previously published July deficit was $54.0 billion.

The politically-sensitive goods trade deficit with China fell 3.1% to $31.8 billion on an unadjusted basis, with imports declining 0.8%.

The trade war with China, and the uncertainty that surrounds it, have disrupted companies' supply chains, increased input costs and delayed investments in hiring and investment. The increase was driven by an explosion of imported consumer goods along with new tariffs against China and Europe. The goods trade deficit with the European Union jumped 23.7% to $15.3 billion.
