Peter Navarro, former White House director of trade and manufacturing policy and author of Breitbart News said on Tuesday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had undermined former President Donald Trump’s quest to “drain the swamp” by delaying appointments of top officials in federal agencies and departments.
“The only thing I can give him credit for is that he helped President Trump appoint a lot of conservative judges — okay, good for him — but everything else he did was designed to screw Donald Trump.” ‘ Navarro said on SiriusXM Breitbart News daily with host Alex Marlow.
He continued: “The worst thing he did, in my opinion, was slowly lead everyone Trump appointed into the big departments and agencies. So if you don’t have these people at the head of these agencies, you can’t drain the swamp — and then fast-forward — McConnell, along with Fox’s Karl Rove, made one of the dumbest gambles in Georgia, and they screwed up those Senate races.
Navarro said McConnell expects Democrats to win a majority in the US House of Representatives and the presidency in 2020 while retaining majority leader status in the US Senate.
“McConnell was betting that he would be the Senate leader and the Dems would hold the House [winning] the White House and him as kingmaker,” Navarro explained, “but he messed it up so bad with Karl Rove. We also lost the Senate.”
Navarro emphasized his educational pedigree in economics when he called rising government-induced inflation and the cost of living grim.
“People should be alarmed,” he noted. “Look, I’m a Harvard educated macroeconomist, I’m over 70 years old, [and] I saw the stagflation of the 1970s, that was the last time we had recession and inflation at the same time, and it’s worse than anything I’ve ever seen.”
The status quo of illegal immigration, Navarro argues, has its most damaging economic and social effects on “black, brown, and working-class Americans.”
He concluded, “When you come across this wave of immigrants, black, brown, and blue-collar Americans are at the point of their spear because they’re cutting their wages, competing for their jobs, and oh by the way, we’re importing crime and all sorts of mayhem across the border.”
