Trump Chooses U.S. Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer

The presidential transition team announced that President-elect Donald Trump has chosen Robert Lighthizer as U.S. trade representative. 

According to,

“The nominee “served under President Ronald Reagan as Deputy United States Trade Representative, playing a major role in developing trade policy for the Reagan Administration and negotiating roughly two dozen bilateral international agreements on a variety of topics from steel to grain. These agreements were uniformly tough and frequently resulted in significant reductions in the shipment of unfairly traded imports into the United States,” the team said.”
