Donald Trump introduced his latest proposal dealing with trade Thursday, saying he would like to open an American Desk office that would handle everything having to do with the country's trade policy.

Trump made the announcement during a campaign speech at the Delaware County, Ohio Fairgrounds, according to Politico.

The American Desk, Trump said, would "protect the economic interest of the American worker and the national interest of the United States."

Trump has strong feelings about the issue of trade. He has consistently bashed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and has vowed to renegotiate the deal or withdraw the United States from the agreement if he becomes president next month.

During Thursday's speech, Trump said repairing what he thinks is America's broken trade policy needs to happen.

"American trade policy is currently mismanaged by dozens of competing bureaucracies, spread across the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, State, Treasury — all of these departments. So many departments," Trump said.

"It's so complicated . . . The mission of the American Desk will be to protect the economic interest of the American worker and the national interest of the United States."

The proposal sounds somewhat like Trump's foreign policy ideas, which take an America first approach.

During Wednesday's presidential debate, Trump said if he wins, the U.S. will have "more free trade than we have right now."
