President Donald Trump’s adviser on trade and manufacturing policy said Sunday that decisions made over the next week will determine if there’s a recession.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Peter Navarro urged Congress to return to Washington and get busy on stimulus proposals from the White House.

“I think the decisions we make over the next week or two will determine whether we have a significant down turn or not,” he said. “I think Congress needs to come back in session… come back and do the fiscal stimulus,” he said.

“They need to be here, they need to give the American people a payroll tax cut, the middle class blue collar tax cut… and if they don't like it come up with a better idea and I can tell you it's the best idea,” he added.

Navarro said he’s never been more proud of Trump than in the current crisis triggered by the coronavirus outbreak.

“What I thought was on Friday , I was never prouder of my president than on Friday in the Rose Garden,” he said. “I think what he offered there was a clear plan, and also, light at the end of the tunnel, a path essentially to victory, both in terms of public health and on the economy. “

He said the proposed relief is meant to be far beyond just aiding hard-hit industries.

“The most important part of that relief in terms of mitigating this virus is that paid leave for workers, as this is compassionate but it is also you can't have the choice of going to work sick or staying home and going broke,” he said.

“So we do that on the relief, we have the fiscal stimulus with the payroll tax cut and then we help our industries, he added.

“We want to help our people, we can't let them go broke at home, but at the same time if they can stay home if they're sick, or stay home if they need to take care of their family, they will be able to do that,” he said. “We will stop this virus, flatten that curve that's the mission that the president gave us in the rose garden, America is going to fulfill our mission.”
