Navarro to Be Excluded From China Talks, Officials Say

Navarro to Be Excluded From China Talks, Officials Say”

With Navarro excluded, the USA will be represented in the meeting by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, among others.

Trump administration trade advisor Peter Navarro will reportedly not be taking part in discussions with top Chinese economic advisor Liu He on Thursday, in another sign that momentum is building for the United States and China to strike a deal and avert a costly tariff battle.

Despite speculation he wouldn't partake in high-level trade talks with a Chinese delegation on Thursday, the White House said he would.

Reports have signaled Navarro's apparent waning influence on trade matters, leading to questions about his role in the White House.

Bloomberg cited administration officials who said Navarro did not work well with the team when the USA trade delegation, headed by Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, met with Chinese trade officials in Beijing earlier this month.

In a scoop published by Axios on Wednesday, Jonathan Swan reports Navarro blew up at Mnuchin when he learned the Treasury Secretary had held one-on-one meetings with China that did not include him. Navarro - a hardliner against China - cursed at Mnuchin and fumed about being shut out of the talks, the sources said.

"Navarro, 68, who once published a book titled "Death by China" and has always been hostile to the country, has lately behaved erratically and unprofessionally, the officials said". The officials would not elaborate on Navarro's behavior.

The Chinese official, Vice Premier Liu He, will meet with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in Washington.

U.S. -Chinese trade relations are on shaky ground.

The Trump administration slapped $50 billion tariff package targeting China over last month what it says are unfair trade practices, with 25 percent tariffs being leveled on imports of Chinese electronics, shoes, furniture and other goods. Navarro's strong anti-China views and skepticism of free trade helped to build Trump's early economic agenda.
