「Remarks by President Trump et al. at Signing of Trade Executive Orders | whitehouse.gov」

(略)Today, I am signing two executive orders that send this message loud and clear and that set the stage for a great revival of American manufacturing.

And you saw that today; you saw what happened, you saw the kind of numbers we have.

The survey actually showed 93 percent of manufacturers are now optimistic about the future -- a record high -- and thats up from about 56 percent just a couple of months ago.

Were going to build on that tremendous momentum. Were bringing manufacturing and jobs back to our country.

First, Im signing an executive order to ensure that we fully collect all duties imposed on foreign importers that cheat.

Theyre cheaters. From now on, those who break the rules will face the consequences -- and theyll be very severe consequences.

Second, I am ordering the first-ever comprehensive review of America’s trade deficits and all violations of trade rules that harm the United States and the workers of the United States, just as I promised during my campaign.

This review will be led by Secretary Wilbur Ross, who is joining us here today.

Wilbur is an outstanding success story, an unbelievable businessman, a great but very, very fair negotiator, and on Wall Street hes simply known as Wilbur, and everybody knows him.

And now we have him on our side. So I thank you, Wilbur.

Youre going to do a fantastic job.

Were going to investigate all trade abuses, and, based on those findings, we will take necessary and lawful action to end those many abuses.

I am not beholden to any political or financial interest.

I don’t care.

Im here to do a job.

Im doing a job for the American worker.

I really don’t care.

Im not thinking about my business or anybodys business.

Wilbur isnt. Peter isn’t.

None of the folks that we have up here are.

Were doing a job.

Its an opportunity like nobody has ever given.

And were here to do a great job for the American worker and for our companies where the American workers are employed.

I work for the American people.

Whether youre a Democrat, a Republican, or belong to no party at all, you are an American and Im here to represent you and your family.

Were going to get this thing straightened out.

Were going to get these bad trade deals straightened out -- right, Peter?

Its time.

Youve been looking at it for years -- right, Wilbur?

This combination over here, it cant be beaten.

Thats why I defied the special interests and followed through on my pledge to withdraw immediately from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. And thats why I am taking these very historic steps today.

The wellbeing of America and the American worker is my North Star.

And these two orders will point out our nation, and point to everybody, point to the world.

Next week, as you know, in Florida, the Southern White House, were having the President of China and a large group from China as representatives.

And were going to get down to some very serious business.

So we look forward to it.

Ive spoken to him numerous times on the phone.

We look very much forward to it.

But its been very bad whats been happening to our country in terms of our companies and in terms of our jobs.

So were going to start turning it around.

Were going to turn it around fast; its not going to take a long time. Its going to go fast.
