White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said Sunday that he's beginning to wonder if Democrats are purposely stalling coronavirus stimulus negotiations to tank the economy in an attempt to make President Trump look bad.
"There is this theory, Chuck, that the Democrats would prefer to see the economy go into the tank for another 90 days because that harms the president," Navarro told Chuck Todd on Sunday in an interview on "Meet the Press." "I hope that Capitol Hill hasn't become that cynical. But watching these negotiations makes me wonder, because we've been willing to bend."

Talks have been stalled for weeks as Democrats have asked for more than $3 trillion in the relief bill while Republicans are looking for a narrower package around $1 trillion. Democrats on Thursday offered to lower their request by $1 trillion if Republicans were to increase their proposal by $1 trillion. However, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Friday the idea was a "non-starter."
