    Well done, Mr. Navarro, stating facts succinctly, well done.

    I appreciate Maria’s interview style, allowing Mr. Navarro to complete a thought/sentence.

        Yes, those of us who really respect Maria, know we need to give leeway to her contract…and ‘da Man’.

        However, Maria is still, by far, the best truthful mind on the boob tube.

      Minnie I think your being to nice about Maria today.

      I don’t think Maria Bartiromo will be inviting Peter Navarro back to discuss tariffs! Her global masters cannot be to happy with her performance today. Peter absolutely took her out to the woodshed throughout the interview on every single BS statement or question that she had.

      He also did an incredible job of explaining to Justin and the rest of our so called allies that the tariff on steel and aluminum has nothing to do with our concern about their steel and aluminum but everything to do with making sure our companies remain viable in our country.

      Some incredible news is shared about Appalachian Region (Kentucky).

      Americans are WINNING BIGLY!

      While I understand your point, Dave, I truly believe Maria, et al, are spitting in the wind.

      America is waking up, thanks to Mr. President and his loyal Deplorables.

      Our numbers grow, daily.

      So, let them put on their s*^t arse grins and present ridiculous questions/hypotheses.

      President Trump and his Administration have this, and we have his back.

      They underestimate the power of We the People.

        I seldom listen to the shows posted, but today I forced myself to watch this one and was extremely disappointed her style. If Maria is one of the better interviewers, heaven help us all. I appreciate Navarro’s getting his message across as much as he could. But frankly, I’ll not watch again. Let me read transcripts or opinion pieces for myself without having to slog through someone else’s preconceived notions of right and wrong – or perhaps, of fact and BS.

        Indeed, Americans are waking up. You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink… All you can do is show it where the water is and hope the horse will drink it when it wants it. My point with my comment about Maria here was she was trying to drive the horses off from Peter Navaro trying to show the water…

        I appreciate the patience I saw in Mr. Navaro and the other interview with Chris Malice and Larry Kudlow. By showing the water, they (Mr. Navaro and Mr. Kudlow) are educating others and showing how complicit these media types are against the working men and women of this nation. This interview was not fair and balanced, it was fear and nuanced…

    the middle class people such as myself are not worried about paying higher prices to buy products produced in the USA by tax paying Americans. The big corporations invested in Chinese and foreign products and investment stocks are the ones screaming about it. They are the ones that lose profits and tax shelters. Trump/Ross are leveling out the playing field, rather than line their pockets with kickbacks, stock options and bribes that 95% of CONgress takes.

      Agree. Please let me save up to buy American products again. I am sick of the shoddy Chinese (and other) imports. Since October 15, two brand new blenders have broken on me. One (Oster – Mexico – lasted about five weeks) and the other (Black and Decker – China – lasted six months). I am now waiting the arrival of an American made one (Blendtec) that cost $200, but has an 8 (yes, eight) year guarantee! BTW I’m a little old lady in tennis shoes who only uses it once a day to make Bullet Proof Coffee for breakfast.

        We’re still using a Hamilton Beach mixer (1940s) begifted to me by my mother-in-law who had two. Works like a charm except for that last cup of flour when making gingerbreadmen (and women) cookies at Christmas, which has to be mixed in by hand.

        When PDJT speaks to national security, imagine if we were suddenly at war and had to revamp all our industries to build arms materiel as we did in WWII. What would happen if we had no steel industry, no aluminum industry, no textile industry — we were all service and tech focused and even the parts to the tech industry were imported. THAT is the huge breach in our national security PDJT is addressing, not Twinkle Toes Trudeau’s hurt feelings because we might go to war with Canada.

        Canada, please replace this dork.

    Whenever listening to or reading Business News, one has to keep in mind their approach to trade discussions comes from a completely different context. The “reporters, commentators, and experts”, who are media employees, approach anything business from the perspective of changes in stocks and bonds. These people focus solely on the bottom line and values of equities. They do not have a care about growth of industry and skilled labor pools in the US unless it reduces cost and increases profits.

    On the other hand, members of President Trump’s team and President Trump, care about the welfare people and nation they represent.

    The American People have to decide if they want compare prices of goods fairly priced and growth of skilled tax paying labor pools vs cheap stuff on the shelves and hamburger flipper being the pinnacle of the skilled labor pool.

      The focus of the President and his team remains fair trade, fairly riced goods competing and fair competition. The business media folks, included the beloved Maria B, never discuss these aspects of trade. The only Business Media people I have heard discussing trade and business in a balanced way are; Charles Payne, Stuart Varney, Liz Clamen and Liz MacDonald.

      Yes, it is the wall street versus main street crowds. Totally different perspectives. What disappoints me is that while I have money in stocks, I am able to see that the main street values are more important to our country.

      It tells me that these people don’t care what is best for our country if it conflicts with their investment choices.

        Stocks anchored in Main Street, new issues or small caps should do very well. All stocks should not be lumped together.

        IMHO, there will be value in well performing stocks from companies investing in American growth or international growth based in the US.

          Totally agree, WSB.

          I think the typical big wall street guys are more opportunistic and can’t profit as easily from the small caps, because their huge buying positions would drive the price up while they are buying.

          So they tend to focus on the huge conglomerates that are profiting from these rigged trade agreements.

        The interesting thing is that voters who depend on equities for their long term retirement well-being do actually see it and we sided with the President’s MAGA message knowing we may loose some cash in the near term until the US domestic main street economy comes fully on-line. Yet we voted against the democratic party’s tyranny for the good of those around us.

    What’s so hilarious are the naysayers and doom and bloomers who fail to add! If we have smaller trade deficits than more of our net worth stays in the good ole USA! If these countries could produce what we sell to them, they would’ve stopped buying from us years ago!!! Also, all money from US Tariffs go to pay off tax revenue deficits (ie Federal Reserve!)…

    I’m not impressed with Navarro. He could blow up Maria’s stupid scare tactics by pointing out the simple fact that money flows where it’s cheapest to do business and the market is biggest, which means businesses will naturally begin producing in America. The increase in jobs and standard of living will create more than enough domestic consumption and productivity to offset whatever may be lost to any “retaliation” especially from Canada or MX. But most importantly, when those countries are running surpluses in the billions of dollars strictly due to unfair tariffs, WE have very little to lose.

    Trump is IMO doing several very smart things simultaneously.
    1. Hiring very articulate lieutenants. Mattis, Pompeo, Navarro, Kudlow (former TV personality) being exhibit A. A lessonnlearned from The Apprentice.
    2. Distilling things to their essence for us Deplorables. Example from Navarro here. ‘Look, steel and aluminum are essential for national defense. Cannot rely on imports. NAFTA completely separate. Canada unfair to Maine loggers and Wisconsin dairy farmers.’
    3. Stating clearly what he and his lieutenants fair trade = bilateral reciprocity. Example of unfair: EU autos. Example of unfair: China IPR.
    Will aid midterms, because boters are gaining clarity about goals and methods—and seeing major results (jobs, tax reform ‘crumbs’, business…) The louder globalists and progressives howl, the more confident Deplorables become about promises made, promises kept.

  17. It’s a very simple calculus on steel, for example.

    If 80% of the steel used in this country is ultimately of Chinese origin, and that supply was disrupted, American steel manufacturers would have to make up that shortfall in supply. Yes, prices would rise on steel. That is the point!! Domestic capacity can not increase until driven by higher prices! Navarro’s basic point is if there are no domestic steel manufacturers, there is no one to make up that shortfall. And an even worse scenario, if we go to war with anyone, and China makes all of our steel, our supply will be cut off, and no ships, tanks, buildings, factories, anything we need steel to make.

    Steel mills, steel jobs, steel supply will not rise without being preceded by higher prices. That is what price signals mean. The increasing prices send a signal to steel mills, executives, investment bankers, etc. that more steel is needed. That is exactly why centrally planned economies fail. No one knows how much steel to make. They either make too much, and prices drop too much, or they don’t make enough, and prices spike uncontrollably.

    The mistake everyone on TV that I see, libertarians, free traders, etc. make is not allowing for supply to increase. Assuming a static, fixed level of supply means you have to freak out if Chinese steel is taken off the market.

    Here is how it works:

    1: Trump either announces tariff or closes market to Chinese steel
    2: Supply drops
    2: Prices rise
    3: Large customers such as Exxon Mobil make statements that planned expansions will not happen with steel prices at the current higher levels (price signal), or customers just buy less, resulting in lower sales (more price signals)
    4: Steel companies expand existing operations, open new steel mills, gain investment for new capacity.
    5: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!
    6: Supply increases
    7: Chinese steel supplies are replaced by American steel supplies
    8: Prices return to previous levels
