Trade is an important part of the American economy and a key driver of many industries. In 2018, the United States imported $4.2 trillion worth of goods, services and income. It also exported $3.7 trillion, making the trade deficit for the year $500 billion. The value of the deficit (or surplus) changes based on a variety of factors, including the government's use of tariffs.
