US Commerce Secretary’s Role In WH Increasingly Marginalized

In recent months, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’ role in trade talks has been increasingly marginalized.

Insiders say his agency is now widely seen in Donald Trump’s White House as a mess.

Trump has even lashed out at Ross in Oval Office meetings, saying he’s “past his prime.” The secretary is expected to head to China in early June in hope of cutting some type of trade deal.
