"We're talking about high technology across the board, whether it's computer chips or cars or anything in between," said Navarro.
"As we're negotiating with one country here, we're going to be negotiating with one country here, and another country here," Navarro said.
What a damn goofy central planner, he is no understanding of how free markets or free trade work.
