Navarro: Trump's Constituency Is Mainstream Republicans, Blue-Collar Democrats & Independents Sick Of The Swamp

|

White House director for the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro said President Trump is the "hardest working president in history" in an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday's 'Meet the Press.'


CHUCK TODD: Yeah. No, let me ask you this. Where is the president? Why was he at his golf club all weekend? Why isn't he negotiating? Look, I understand --

PETER NAVARRO: Hang on. Let me, let me respond --

CHUCK TODD: -- you guys don't like each other.

PETER NAVARRO: -- to that. That is not --

CHUCK TODD: That Nancy Pelosi and the president --

PETER NAVARRO: Hang on.

CHUCK TODD: Where is he?

PETER NAVARRO: Well, he --

CHUCK TODD: Why isn't he involved?

PETER NAVARRO: Look, you have to understand this is the hardest working president in history. He works 24/7. He can be in Bedminster, Mar-a-Lago, the Oval Office, or anywhere in between. He can be at the Whirlpool factory, like we were on Thursday, celebrating working men and women benefiting from tariffs. He's working 24/7. The problem here, the problem here is Capitol Hill, the swamp, two houses that are too far apart. I mean, the Lord and the founding fathers created executive orders because of partisan bickering and divided government. That's what we have here. But the president's taken action. His constituency -- let's be clear. His constituency is mainstream Republicans, blue collar Democrats, and independents who are sick and tired of the swamp. And he reached out and he took action.
