In an interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday, Peter Navarro, a previous White House head of manufacturing and trade policy’s, claimed that Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Senate Majority Leader obstructed previous Pres. Donald Trump’s efforts to “drain the swamp” by postponing appointments for senior leaders at federal government departments and agencies.
On SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, Navarro said, “The one and only thing I’ll give credit to him for is he assisted President Trump to get a lot of the conservative justices chosen — okay, fantastic for him — although everything else that he did was geared to undermine Donald Trump.”
“The very worst thing that he did, in my opinion, was to slow-walk all the appointees of Trump to the major agencies and departments. So if you do not have these people in the top of those departments, you can’t drain the swamp — and then fast-forward to McConnell making one of the absolute dumbest bets in cooperation with Fox’s Karl Rove in GA, and they messed up all those Senate races,” the speaker continued.
According to Navarro, McConnell anticipated that Democrats would secure a majority in the U.S. Senate and win both the White House and the U.S. House of Representatives in 2020.
Navarro said, “McConnell botched it up so terribly with Karl Rove. He was counting on his becoming the Head of the Senate, and Dems retaining the House and getting the White House, and on him being the leader of the party. We also lost the Senate.”
When emphasizing the terrible situation resulting from increasing inflation that is government-driven and the cost of living, Navarro stressed his background in economics education.
He said, “People ought to be frightened. Look, this is worse than anything I’ve ever seen. I’m a macroeconomist with a Harvard education, I am over 70, and I lived through the stagflation of the 1970s, the last time we experienced simultaneous deflation and inflation.”
According to Navarro, “brown, black, and blue-collar Americans” suffer the worst economic and social effects from the status quo of undocumented immigrants.
“Black, brown, and blue-collar Americans are all at the point of the spear when this surge of immigrants comes over because it pushes down their income, competes for their employment, and oh and by the way, we bring crime and all kinds of chaos across the border.”
