The President’s economic blueprint, released in mid-October, is “in unprecedented” and “fantastically complex,” according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
Trump’s plan would make the United States the second-largest buyer of Chinese exports, surpassing Japan, according to the WSJ.
But its main focus would be on infrastructure investment.
Trump has pledged to build a wall along the US-Mexico border and has said he would increase the US role in the Asia-Pacific region.
In January, he told The New York Times that his economic agenda would include infrastructure spending.
“The idea is to build up our industries,” Trump told the paper.
“And we will see if that works.”
The Wall Street report suggests that the Trump administration is not making the necessary investments.
“Trump’s blueprint is the most complex, sprawling, and unfunded agenda he has put forward in his four years in office,” the WSJD wrote.
“It is likely to take years for the country to fully digest and absorb it, which will put more pressure on his already tight approval ratings.”
