WASHINGTON — President Obama signed an executive order on Wednesday to help accelerate and streamline the processing of imports and exports at U.S. ports.
The action should help apparel, textile and footwear importers and exporters cut through red tape and process their cargo to and from U.S. ports more quickly. Retailers and brands imported a total of $104.7 billion of apparel and textile products to the U.S. in 2013, according to the Commerce Department. The U.S. exported $23.6 billion in textile and apparel products to the world last year.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
