Sunday Talks: National Trade Council Director Peter Navarro Discusses Confronting China…

National Trade Council Director Peter Navarro appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo for a discussion of ongoing trade initiatives.

Keep in mind, while simultaneously confronting China head-on, USTR Lighthizer has current trade deals, centered around reciprocity, being negotiated with: NAFTA [Mexico and Canada (round #7)], the EU, South Korea (almost done), Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Australia and Japan (almost done).


A rolling stone gathers no moss.

    What stood out to me: Trump is not only working to create jobs here, but around the world. Unbelievable. That is one smart foreign policy approach!

    • Also Navarro pointed out that the United States is not the only country that is tired of China “stealing their stuff”.

      Apparently several other countries are also very tired of China stealing their ideas and technology but it is the U.S. that finally leads the way and pushes back.

      Go Pres Trump!

        “the United States is not the only country that is tired of China “stealing their stuff””

        Tariffs need to be applied to bring the cost of the counterfeited merchandise comparable to the patented domestic product. With a portion of the tariff going to reimburse the aggrieved patent holder and manufacturer. Many of these things (I think of small engines specifically) have virtually all parts interchangeable with the brand name product.

        Recently the cartridge went bad on our Delta faucet. I had thought that a generic replacement would be availably from my local plumbing supply. Nope, had to order it from the manufacturer and get it mailed. It was free, you just had to wait for it. The counter person at the plumbing supply said they make little changes to each style of faucet, so cartridges are not interchangeable It was not practical for their warehouse to stock them all. If the cartridges were generic and interchangeable, the Chinese would copy the cartridge and flood the market.

    Peter Navarro is getting more and more comfortable talking about our President’s trade plans on tv. He is absolutely right that our President and his Killers saw this as a four step process.

    1) Deregulation across every single sector of our government. They are now on the cusp on reforming Dodd-Frank for medium and small size banks allowing small businesses to borrow money 💰 more easily.

    2) Energy Revolution is allowing our country to process 10+ million barrels os fuel a day. That number will be increased to over 12+ million a day over the next couple of years. By 2023, we will lead the world in fuel ⛽️ production.

    From the article linked above:

    3) Tax Reform Bill has allowed companies and corporations to not only remain in our country but to return to our country because the Corporate Tax Rate is at 20% and there is a minimal tax on bringing money 💰 back into our country. Also keep in mind that equipment can be deducted in full the same year it was bought.

    4) Trade is the final piece of the puzzle! You could not have worked on it before the other three because the RINOs would have realized the President’s plan and would not have passed the Tax Reform Bill. By being so close to finalizing deals with South Korea 🇰🇷 and Japan 🇯🇵, our President and his Killers are tightening the screws on China 🇨🇳. China realizes that Vietnam 🇻🇳, Malaysia 🇲🇾 and the Philippines 🇵🇭 are ready to pick up some of the manufacturing that China 🇨🇳 currently enjoys.

    Absolutely breathtaking and brilliant!

      May I respectfully add another step…5) Buildup of the US Military, as evidenced by our largest military budget in history and greatly needed to repair the dire neglect from Obama. This is important to stop any threat talk from China and other punk countries who want to muscle us into doing their bidding. Peace through strength.

    It would be interesting and helpful to hear one of Trump’s economic experts discuss:
    1. Even before Trump was elected and started the America first initiative prices for main street folks were already increasing at the cash register. It did not register as “inflation” because even the current definition of inflation is more oriented on impacts the Wall Street financiers.
    2. It would also be nice to hear discussion over the fact that the nation that builds stuff gets to set the prices for goods and defines who gets to define who provides the major services related to those goods.


    • thedoc00 says:

      The key part of the discussion on point 2 is that if you do not have the ability to counter with indigenous manufacturing you are at the mercy of the folks who do.

    Thank you for the great stuff here! So thrilled about the MAGA plan and excited about how fast it has kicked off. All 4 of my young adult kids received a VERY NICE tax break this year. So happy. And now trade kicking in.

    I remember those days of being proud to buy Made in America. Glad to see it come back.

    Interesting…..The markets that is. For years the trading is controlled to near perfection by automated trading and totally ignores fundamentals and earnings. Then boom! Know what I mean?

    The US is nearing a trade deal with Japan?

    Japan has refused to negotiate a trade deal with the US for decades….remember the Uruguay round of GATT ?? Japan did not open any markets to America.

    No new trade deal in any Tokyo newspapers….where is this info coming from?



    • Brian Backes says:

      Good question. I want to know, too.


    • Deplorable_Infidel says:

      “remember the Uruguay round of GATT ?”

      Not until you mentioned it, then it came back to me. As PDT has said repeatedly, our leaders brokered bad deals for the American people while they enriched themselves. As a proponent of tariffs to raise money for the Federal Government (instead of the income tax), I remember thinking to myself over all those years, “Why is it ALL these other countries look out for their own interests, EXCEPT the USA?

      Perhaps it is because even though we vote in this country, as PDT says, “The system is rigged, folks”. The oligarchy owns the red team and the blue team.

    I wonder if it would help President Trump if American Patriots decided to boycott Chinese goods? I don’t really like boycotts, but the Chinese have been causing us a lot of problems with stealing and hacking all our computers, killing our dogs, shipping Fentanyl and killing our children.

    Personally, I’m a little bit tired of them. Panda, Red Dragon…..they both suck.

    After all, we are the largest economy in the world and there is nothing that I can think of that China makes or sells here that is a necessity. I’m really sick and tired of their chubby friend Lil Kim too.

    Made in China could become Do Not Purchase.

    In the end, we decide who gets what. Just sayin’

      We already are as much as possible in our house. Imagine if Every MAGA household committed to spending 10% less on any foreign items or items USA made with foreign materials the impact it would have on our GDP….

      I will be focusing my new blog on this aspect of living when we hit the road for Alaska shortly, so we can network and find American companies to support, and also encourage companies that assemble here with foreign components to source American components where possible. The MAGAnomics will work much smoother and faster if we band together and do this.

    “while simultaneously confronting China head-on,”

    This morning (Monday 26 MAR 2018) my mother had the TV tuned in on local news for the weather. Afterwards it was mentioned that an upcoming story would be about hoverboard injuries the first two years on the market.

    I recall that rage when it first hit and many entities jumped on the bandwagon to put a product on the market. I also recall the serious problem that occurred because all of the lower cost products had Chinese batteries that readily caught fire. An immediate ban was placed on bringing them on board airplanes, bringing them into many schools, etc.


  12. Everett Miller says:

    Trump has been preaching “fair trade” for decades. Now he has assembled the best team in the History of Global Trade to start fixing the Globalists mistakes. These multinationals can still have access to the World Markets, but the FAIR free-market Competition will force them to up their game to compete.

    While enjoying unfair trading advantages arranged by the WTO, the IMF, and the corrupt politicians providing the means for their CRONY CAPITALISM they have coasted.

    Now, Trump is also unleashing the American Spirit of innovation and excellence AND injecting it back into our biggest and best companies. This secondary effect may well be a Yuge tidal wave of increased productivity and innovation–while giving us, and the World, better products and services at better prices. Got to love it.


  13. I once saw Chris Wallace, Paul Ryan and Joe Biden At the D.C. YMCA. They were arguing about something I couldn’t make out. After my workout I decided to get a steam. Upon entering the steam room I saw the same group of politicos huddled over in the corner still arguing about something. I then overheard Biden insisting that it was Ryan’s turn to give obama a blumpkin
