Navarro: White House's operating 'assumption is a second Trump term'

Source: Politico

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said Friday that the Trump administration is operating as if it will extend into a second term, attempting to stiff-arm the reality of last week's election and dismissing talk that the incoming Biden administration might unwind many of President Donald Trump's policies.

“We are moving forward here at the White House under the assumption there will be a second Trump term,” Navarro said on Fox Business, echoing a refrain from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the president’s most steadfast allies. Those remarks represent a sharp departure from the electoral reality that President-elect Joe Biden was the victor in last week's presidential election, claiming at least 290 electoral votes and winning the popular vote by more than 5 million votes.

The president has refused to concede to Biden and his administration has rejected any appearance of assisting with the transfer of power while Trump’s campaign pursues a portfolio of legal challenges in a last-ditch attempt to save the president’s reelection.

“Until we do that, our assumption is a second Trump term,” Navarro said. “Any speculation about what Joe Biden might do, I think, is moot at this point.”

5. Why pay attention to anything that Peter Navarro says?

Peter Navarro once called Dr. Fauci his colleague.

Any speculation about what Joe Biden might do, I think, is moot at this point.”

It is not what Joe Biden might do but what Joe Bidden is now doing and will do when he is in
the White House.

15. No kidding

"speculation about what Joe Biden might do"

Lets see, let me guess. He will come to Washington on January 20th to be sworn in as the 46th President.

25. Me raising my hand .... call on me call on me

President elect Biden and in the future President Biden will:

Listen to experts
Expect the people around him to bring up counter arguments IN PRIVATE .... Just like he did to President Obama
Drop the hammer on Russia
Release the Muller Report
Rebuild the economy
Help people in need
Read Poetry
Visit our friends
love on his dogs
love on his family and friends
Not take crap from McConnell
Get a handle on C-19
and make us proud

Joe, Are you OK? We are going to be OK.

a perfect fit for where trump is.

10. He is saying "we are incompetent. No one can trust anything we say from now till January"

"It's not just Trump that's delusional. The whole White House has made a conscious decision to share the delusion. We have gone full QAnon."

18. If someone is holed up, you just cut off their food, water, heat, lights,

internet (Twitter!) and shut off all supply lines so nothing can get in.

Then you arrest and imprison everyone who conspired to overthrow the government.

19. Entomb the White House in concrete, Chernobyl-style.

I assume that would make Trump's 2nd term last forever. Just like Khoufu.

26. I have some bad news for you. Mr. Novarro.

Preparedness for Joe Biden to take over is not what's moot here. It's you, your running buddies and all your squawking that is moot.

You can assume all you want. Assume the Washington Monument is made up of enough gold bricks to pay off the national debt. Doesn't make it so.

28. Speculation about what Biden might DO? Seriously?

On January 20, 2021, Joseph Robinette Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, and the Secret Service will escort the Trumps out of the White House.

WHAT THE FUCK.

30. This is where the split happens

Profitable businesspeople won’t put up with such bullshit. Serious money makers will recognize Navarro and Trump are dangerously ignorant on financial matters after remarks like that.

One of the defining lines between successful capitalists and failed capitalists is the ability to cut losses their short before they go bankrupt. Trump doesn’t know that.
