When you only listen to Trump or media that wants to back his agenda, you miss the whole picture... He only wants to talk about goods... Not goods AND SERVICES. It makes sense that we don't export as many goods because we are a post production economy. We have a 101 BILLION DOLLAR SURPLUS with the EU when you include services and not just goods.

"The United States’ economy has shifted “away from manufacturing and toward service provision industries” in recent decades, according the report. “Focusing only on the trade in goods alone ignores the United States’ comparative advantage in services.”
