The Wall Street Journal: Trump prepares executive orders targeting unfair trade

President Donald Trump plans to sign a pair of executive orders Friday aimed at curbing what he sees as unfair trade practices that have damaged the U.S. economy and wiped out jobs while adding to the nation’s trade deficit, administration officials said.

The orders are modest compared with the dramatic changes in trade policy that Trump promised on the campaign trail. But administration officials said they underscore the president’s determination to reset trade relations so that American employers can compete on more equitable terms.

One of the orders calls for a study that will examine past trade agreements and measure whether they delivered the promised benefits.
