The Daily Beast tells us that not all is going well with Comrade Stupid’s negotiators in his e-z to win trade war with China:
“The confrontation, which took place between Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and White House economic adviser Peter Navarro, came during a very important stretch of trade negotiations for this White House. And it underscored the deep divisions that have developed within the president’s economic team over a key pillar of the president’s agenda.
“The following day, Mnuchin, according to two sources, held a closed-door meeting with his Chinese counterpart, without the other U.S. officials, forgoing two negotiating sessions featuring the full U.S. delegation that Navarro wanted. After he caught wind of Mnuchin’s one-on-one, Navarro exploded at the Treasury secretary. The confrontation devolved into several minutes of sniping, swearing, several “fucks,” and insults hurled between the two men. The confrontation happened on the lawn in front of the building where the talks were being conducted, according to a person familiar with what took place.”
Mom & Dad are fighting on the lawn in front of the neighbors!
“On Wednesday, Bloomberg reported that Navarro has been excluded from trade talks with China on Thursday. Other leading Trump economic advisers are expected to fill out the U.S. delegation, potentially including Mnuchin, Lighthizer, and Ross.”
So, what could it be that would drive a Bond Villian and some underling to verbal fisticuffs? The living typo, Steve Mnunchin is a free trader, and Peter Navarro is not.
Anyway, Comrade Stupid hires only the best! The Best!
