White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro has been sounding the alarm on the corruption and dangerousness emanating from China since the beginning of this crisis and he now has issued a warning to the country.
According to The Hill:
Top White House trade adviser Peter Navarro fueled speculation Monday that the Trump administration might retaliate against China with more tariffs.
“A bill has to come due for China,” he said in a CNBC interview. “It’s not a question of punishing them, it’s a question of holding China accountable, the Chinese Communist Party accountable.”
The administration has stepped up its anti-China rhetoric recently, prompting concerns that new tariffs may be in the works or that the initial phase of a broader trade deal signed in January could fall apart.
President Trump said last week he was “very torn” about whether to pull back from the deal and reimpose additional tariffs on Chinese imports.
Navarro has unequivocally placed the blame for the virus and pandemic on China and China alone.
