Trump is frustrated with Wilbur Ross on slow pace of trade progress - report

Trump wants more progress, especially on China

A Bloomberg report says Trump wants Commerce Sec Wilbur Ross to do more to take on China, citing an unnamed official.

The report is a follow-up to a Sunday story from Axios saying Trump and Ross had sparred and that Ross had regularly fallen asleep in meetings.

The takeaway here is that Trump wants more action on trade and that could be a big story in the months ahead.

Here's my favourite Wilbur Ross from the past year.

Update: Axios now reports that a senior aide to Ross is said to resign. Sounds like he got caught leaking.
