ABSURD: Trump's Top China-Hating Trade Advisor Blames China for US Lockdown

President Trump's top trade adviser, Peter Navarro, appeared yesterday on Maria Bartiromo's Fox News show 'Sunday Morning Futures.'

He used the opportunity to blame China for the US lockdowns and resulting economic collapse.

It must be made clear. Regardless of how COVID-19 developed in China from a jump from bats to humans or a leak from a Wuhan lab or whatever,  how to deal with the virus in the US was fully a US operation.

Trump's early moves were a disaster. Democrats saw an opportunity with Trump scaring the hell out of people for what is basically a flu that is not a serious virus for almost all who are not elderly with comorbidities.

Trump started it with his early promotion of nutjob Anthony Fauci in his daily briefings.

Then when the Democrats started locking down the economy, Trump paid the unemployed $600 per week on top of state unemployment plus sending a check to most Americans for $1,200.

If Trump didn't make these payments which allowed many to sit home fat and happy watching Netflix, those in lockdown cities and states would have put enormous pressure on leaders to end the lockdowns.

Trump's shallow thinking caused the disaster. He is a street hustler par excellence but he is not a deep thinker with any basic principles surrounding liberty and free markets.

This is what caused the economic collapse (aided and abetted by Democrats taking advantage of his mistake.)

  1. Yeah, nothing smarter than relying on a communist regime to provide us with necessary drugs and medical supplies. But hey, libertardianism at any cost of course.
