Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BEA | U.S. International Trade in Goods and Services, June 2019, pub'd. Aug 2019
The June figures show [US] surpluses, in billions of dollars, with South and Central America ($4.8), Hong Kong ($2.3), Brazil ($1.3), and United Kingdom ($0.1). [US] Deficits were recorded, in billions of dollars, with China ($30.2), European Union ($15.9), Mexico ($9.2), Japan ($6.2), Germany ($5.2), Canada ($3.3), Italy ($2.6), France ($1.9), Taiwan ($1.7), India ($1.6), South Korea ($1.4), OPEC ($0.3), Saudi Arabia ($0.3), and Singapore ($0.1).
Customary two mo. lag in reporting by ONS and EURSTAT as well.

To be clear, Team Trump's ahh strategy to reverse US trade balances --from deficits all the way down to surplus ...by the world's IMPORTer-- isn't obtaining the desired result. Presumably increasing imports from the US, besides medicine and medical equipment, will further improve US-UK relations in this regard. By val if not vol. Which would be ironic, considering the origins.
