President Donald Trump walked out of an executive order signing ceremony Friday , without actually signing the orders.
According to CNN reports, during the signing ceremony, some White House pool reporters threw President Trump questions about his former national security adviser Michael Flynn who offered to testify on Russian involvement in the US election in return for immunity from prosecution.
Trump simply ignored the questions and moved to another room, to be chased by his VP Mike Pence, who picked up the folders containing the two executive orders and followed. He eventually signed the orders aimed at identifying and targeting foreign trade abuses, but behind closed doors.
One executive order commissions a 90-day study of US trade deficits with some of its largest trading partners to identify potential trade abuses and cheating while the second directive orders stricter and more effective enforcing of US anti-dumping laws to prevent foreign manufacturers from undercutting US companies by selling goods at an unfair price.
