White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said on Sunday that he was beginning to wonder if Democrats were deliberately stalling negotiations on coronavirus stimulus to add value to the economy in an effort the force that makes President Trump worse or not.
“There’s this theory, Chuck, that the Democrats want to see the economy go into a tank in 90 days because it harms the president,” Navarro told Chuck Todd on Sunday in an interview above. “Meet the Press.” “I hope that Capitol Hill doesn’t become so skeptical. But watching these talks makes me wonder, because we’re ready to bend.”

Negotiations have been stalled for weeks as Democrats demand more than $ 3 trillion in the bailout bill while Republicans are looking for a narrower package of around $ 1 trillion. Democrats on Thursday offered to reduce their claim to $ 1 trillion if Republicans increased their proposal by $ 1 trillion. However, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Friday the idea was “not the beginning.”
Meanwhile, President Trump signed four executive orders on Saturday aimed at providing Americans with ongoing relief until a deal is reached, which includes an additional $ 400 per week payment for unemployment for Americans with no jobs, student loan extension, protections. from eviction of renters and landlords, and a paid vacation to the end of the year for Americans earning less than $ 100,000.

Pelosi ordered the executive order and Republican reluctance to meet the $ 2 trillion figure in an interview on “Fox News Sunday”.
“What the president did does not even fulfill what he set out in the categories he did,” she said. “But we told them, we are going to reduce a trillion, you to a trillion. Meet us halfway, and we will be able to have an agreement that addresses the needs of the American people.”
She added that the Republican proposal in its current form is not close enough to help Americans.
“How do you justify tens of billions of dollars to feed hungry people to 250,000 dollars,” she said. “You understand how far apart we are. Just by that example.”
WHAT IS IN FOUR ORDER OF FOUR PURPOSE OF TRUMP CHAIRMAN’S CONSTANTLY PROFIT?
Navarro defended the president’s use of executive orders, saying Trump was “working on behalf of the American people” while Congress remained at a standstill.
“What we get here is the failure of the negotiations and the president has acted on the moves ahead to help discrete groups,” said Navarro.
He also criticized Pelosi, whom he said private negotiations should not be taken into the public forum.
“You don’t do them here on TV. You don’t do them on Capitol Hill in the cinema like Nancy Pelosi does,” Navarro said. “You do it with sincerity. You have to have both sides willing to make a deal. I know a deal can be done if you just follow that rule.”

Navarro acknowledged that if Congress could settle the issue, the president would not need to take executive action, but argued that Democrats should show that they are willing to talk if real progress is made. If not, the government will continue to step in.
“We have four actions that President Trump has taken that will help workers, the unemployed, the tenants, homeowners and students, students on student loans,” Navarro said. “What we need is a sincere negotiation. We have to believe that both sides really want an agreement.”
