It's Navarro's habit to put his foot in his mouth

Editor's Note: Harping on the same string recently, Peter Navarro, director of the White House National Trade Council, accused China of committing the "seven deadly sins" and claimed that China is bearing "all the burdens" of the tariffs imposed by the United States. Zhong Sheng, a columnist for People's Daily, commented on Tuesday:

That Navarro is telling lies is obvious. Besides, his remarks are not conducive to resolving bilateral trade disputes. Contrary to what Navarro said, China and the US should take concrete actions to create favorable conditions for bilateral consultations.

Navarro seems determined to disrupt the global market. The US stock market's reaction to his weird remarks partly reflects this. When China and the US held talks and hopes were raised they would settle their trade disputes, the three major US stock indexes rose in tandem. But when the trade frictions escalated or some US politicians pointed the finger at China, the indexes fell sharply.
