China's 2018 trade surplus with the US hits record high $323 billion even as the two countries remain locked in a trade war


China's 2018 trade surplus with the United States surged to a record $323.3 billion, but exports contracted in December as the delayed impact of President Trump's tariff hikes started to hurt demand.


Exports to the US in 2018 rose 11.3 percent to $478.4 billion despite Trump's punitive duties in a fight over Chinese technology ambitions, customs data showed Monday.



In December, Chinese exports to the United States that had held up through much of the year fell 3.5 percent from a year earlier to $40.3 billion.

I cannot believe that previous administrations did not see this coming. Look at the big picture. We gave China all our manufacturing jobs. Now they make everything and sell it to us. So yeah they are making more money off of us than we are off of them. Trump is trying to fix this and the simple minds don't even understand what the problem is.

Import duties only impacted the last two months of the year, so had little effect on the annual figure. Next year will give a better idea of the impact.
