Trade adviser Peter Navarro on Sunday blamed Washington, D.C.’s mayor Muriel Bowser for the damage to the city in the wake of riots triggered by the death of George Floyd at the hands of police.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Navarro declared “this is is a time to be opening our businesses, not bringing them down, not turning our major metropolitan areas into theme parks for arsonists and looters.”

“Here's what my concern is in this kind of tale of two cities,” he said, comparing Gilford, Maine, where President Donald Trump visited last week, and the nation’s capital.

“D.C. right now is a burned-out shell, and the second worst mayor in America, Muriel Bowser, is largely responsible for that,” he charged.

“She waited until all 50 states to reopen this place and it's not open now,” he continued. “What it is basically is graffiti, it's boarded up places.”

Navarro went on to do “a little arson and looter math for you.”

“When you have an arsonist burn out a small business, that's 100 jobs that are destroyed, not just inside the enterprise but along the supply chain,” he said. “When you have a pack of animals go in and loot a big store, that's thousands of jobs. … add that up over the 16 major metropolitan areas where the National Guard has had to be deployed, that's almost 2 million jobs being impacted at a time when China has put 40 million Americans out of work and killed 100,000 Americans.”
