No, you shouldn't believe all what you read in medias.Look at these numbers :
+ 475% for exports, +264% for imports

US exports to China grow faster than US imports from China.This "hole" is decreasing, be patient

Did you check the overall trade deficit numbers for 2010.

FTD - Statistics - Country Data - U.S. Trade Balance with China

In 2010 there was a $273 BILLION Dollar trade deficit with China.

FTD - Statistics - Country Data - U.S. Trade Balance with China

In 2000 that number was only $83 BILLON Dollars.

I'm not sure Americans should be too happy about $273 BILLION DOLLARS flowing out of the United States into hand of Chinse businesses, workers and the Chinese government when we are in the worst economic downturn since the great depression.

Even as its economy cools, China's demand for imported grain is likely to surge this year, providing a boon to the U.S. and other exporting nations.

This week, China reported that strong imports had sharply narrowed its January trade surplus to $6.45 billion from $13.1 billion in December.
That reflects the country's growing appetite for commodities and other goods.
China is one of the largest metals and energy consumers in the world. It's also a top importer of U.S. agricultural products.


China's grain demand should boost U.S. exports - USATODAY.com

Exactly how do you conclude from a net number suggesting that the deficit grew by 20% that the deficit actually reduced?
