NPR’s Interview with White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro


The Chinese government has responded to the Trump Administration's list of products to be tariffed in order to halt intellectual property theft. The administration released the list of targetted products yesterday. China's response is to target soybeans imported from the United States among other products. None of the tariffs, U.S. or Chinese, are set to go into effect, yet. White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro says “What China is doing, to try to weaken our will and resolve, is to target our agricultural sector because they think they can do that for political reasons and some how President Trump will not be resolute. That’s not going to happen.” Navarro made his comments during an NPR interview Wednesday morning.
