With Donald Trump’s recent decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, a man who has been toiling in relative obscurity for the past year is emerging as a key presidential advisor. He’s Peter Navarro, an economics professor who heads the White House Trade Council.
Dr. Navarro is also an expert on Communist China. And he’s clearly helping shape the Trump administration’s increasingly robust approach towards that nation, which has been waging “unrestricted warfare” against us for at least two decades.
For example, the U.S. Navy is intensifying its challenges to Chinese claims of sovereignty over the South China Sea. Beijing’s expropriation of American intellectual property will be countered next. And the FBI is finally investigating the PRC’s so-called Confucius Institutes that are, in fact, influence and subversion operations on over 100 American college campuses.
Bravo, Messrs. Trump and Navarro!
