Trump's trade czar Ross easily wins Senate confirmation

Trump's trade czar Ross easily wins Senate confirmation | 27 Feb 2017 | Corporate turnaround expert Wilbur Ross easily won confirmation as U.S. commerce secretary on Monday, clearing President Donald Trump's top trade official to start work on renegotiating trade relationships with China and Mexico. The U.S. Senate voted 72-27 to confirm Ross's nomination, with strong support from Democrats. Ross, a 79 investor, is set to become an influential voice in Trump's economic team after helping shape the president's opposition to multilateral free trade [sic] deals such as the now-scrapped Trans-Pacific Partnership.
