Trump says new trade orders set stage for manufacturing revival

WASHINGTON, March 31 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday directed his administration to review U.S. trade deficits and clamp down on countries that abuse trade rules in two executive orders he said would start a new chapter for U.S. workers and businesses.

"Today I'm signing two executive orders that send this message loud and clear, and that set the stage for a great revival of American manufacturing," Trump said in the Oval Office.

"We're going to get these bad trade deals straightened out," Trump said. (Reporting by Roberta Rampton; Editing by James Dalgleish)
