    The U.S. trade deficit widened to $74.6 billion in April (consensus -$75.3 billion) from an upwardly revised $60.6 billion (from -$64.2 billion) in March, which was recalculated with annual revisions to the goods and services series.

    The widening deficit in April was the result of exports being $9.2 billion less than March exports and imports being $4.8 billion more than March imports.

    The key takeaway from the report is the drop in exports, which reflects weakening demand abroad for U.S. goods.
