Trump's Top Trade Hater Excluded From China Talks

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro has been excluded from talks Thursday with China’s top economic envoy aimed at defusing a brewing trade war with the U.S., reports Jennifer Jacobs.

But note, the U.S. participants won't exactly be free traders. The Chinese official, Vice Premier Liu He, will meet with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in Washington. The deputy director of the National Economic Council, Everett Eissenstat, will also participate, according to Jacobs.

Navarro once published a book titled “Death by China

  1. I guess this is good but Ross and Lighthizer are almost as bad.
