President-elect Donald Trump is expected to take a strong hands-on approach to trade policy after he takes office on Friday.

The Hill noted that such a move would place Trump in the role of negotiator-in-chief and allow him to carry through on campaign promises to use his business background and deal-making skills to bring back more jobs to the United States.

"I think he absolutely, from what we've seen, he's going to play a more visible role," The Hill quoted one business source.

As he prepares to take over, Trump has already elevated the importance on trade increasing the number of White House officials working on the issue. He has already created a new office, The White House National Trade Council.

But the website noted that even though he has already picked tough-minded negotiators for trade, it will be Trump who will play a crucial role.

Michael D'Antonio, author of "Never Enough," a 2015 book about Trump's pursuit of success, said the president-elect "likes to be the face of the business," The Hill reported.

"Trump can evaluate the person on the other side of the table and he has enormous confidence to win a deal on the assessment that he makes," D'Antonio was quoted by the website.

"He knows how to seduce the other side with the notion of getting something in return."

Meanwhile, Trump has already said he will do a trade deal with Britain to help make that nation's departure from the European Union "a great thing," USA Today reported.

Trump has promised to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May soon after his inauguration, the newspaper reported.
