Trump Administration China-Hater Walks Back Negative Comments On Trade Deal

Peter Navarro

“It’s over,” Trump trade advisor Peter Navarro told Fox News yesterday in an interview after US stock markets closed about a work-in-progress trade agreement between the United States and China.

He said the “turning point” came when the United States learned about the spreading coronavirus only after a Chinese delegation had left Washington following the signing of the Phase 1 deal on Jan. 15.

“It was at a time when they had already sent hundreds of thousands of people to this country to spread that virus, and it was just minutes after wheels up when that plane took off that we began to hear about this pandemic,” Navarro said.

After markets declined overseas on the comment, Navarro walked back his comments in a statement saying they were taken “wildly out of context."

 President Trump followed with a tweet:
Navarro is one dangerous and economically ignorant dude. He shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the White House, even if just to cut the lawn.
