White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Thursday blasted Dr. Rick Bright as a “deserter in the war on the China Virus” for criticizing the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“He’s not just a disgruntled employee, in my judgment. He is a deserter in the war on the China virus,” Navarro said in an interview with Fox News’ Harris Faulker. “I am a conscript in the army, and before the virus hit I was doing trade deals to try and bring manufacturing home. We should be doing what we’re doing.”
He also defended the White House’s pandemic response and mocked Bright’s “sky-is-falling warnings,” saying they weren’t “comporting with reality,” and added that Bright was “a disgruntled Obama employee.”
