California will “become a red state” after the coronavirus pandemic because the governor won’t reopen the economy soon enough, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night.

“Now they’re talking about never opening Los Angeles until there’s a cure?” Hannity said. “Well, if they want to do that, I guess then they’re going to have to bear the brunt of the cost of that but can’t we learn from the states that did well than from the states that flopped and fell on their face?”

Navarro noted that he lives in California, and that he agrees with Hannity.

“California is my home state,” he said. “I think it’s going to become a red state with that kind of leadership. The reality is that if we don’t open this economy back up we’re not going to have an economy."

He added, "And here’s the other reality that the medical doctors haven’t been telling you. Yeah, the China virus kills directly. But if we keep our economy shut down we’re not only gonna lose trillions of dollars in wealth [and] economic activity, that China-virus shock to the economy kills as well – suicides, drug abuse, depression.

“And guess what? All those people who couldn’t go to the hospital during this lockdown to get procedures for their heart, the kidneys and all of that? That kills too.

“It’s time to get back to work,” Navarro concluded. “We know a lot more than we did when this first hit us, when it came in like a lightning bolt from China because they hid the virus from us.
