The US trade deficit of goods widened to $79.5b in December from $70.5b in November as exports fell 2.8% and imports rose 2.4%.
That compared with the median estimate of economists for $73.6 billion.
Exports of Industrial Supplies and Capital Goods plunged in December and imports of food & beverage surged.
This is the widest goods trade deficit in US history.
Trump is not winning on this one!
