The trade deficit with China surged 16.7 percent to $36 billion in January, the United States' total trade deficit increased to a more than nine-year high during the first month of 2018.

This is the limits on the president power, because he realized that guns should be limited at some point, but he had no idea where and how to start, even he had a plan, it needs to be passed through Congress.
