Trump's pick for trade representative signals focus on curbing imports
from The Wall Street Journal
Robert Lighthizer, president-elect Donald Trump’s pick to be the nation’s chief trade negotiator, is a veteran trade lawyer with a résumé well-suited for an administration intent on curbing imports it sees as damaging to U.S. businesses. The shift on trade is part of a bet that a tougher approach to China, Mexico and other trading partners — including by imposing import duties — could boost American firms without kicking off a trade war or raising the price of imported goods.
