Peter Navarro: 'Moot' Point to Worry What Biden Will Do

The White House is moving forward with President Donald Trump's signing of an executive order on Thursday banning U.S. investments in 31 companies with ties to China's military under the belief that the president will serve a second term in office, and it's a "moot" point to wonder what Joe Biden will do, trade adviser Peter Navarro said Friday. 

"I think it is really important, before people's heads explode here, that what we seek is verifiable ballots, certifiable ballots," Navarro told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "We have what appears, in some sense, to be an immaculate deception."

Trump was leading in two battleground states on Election Day, but Biden came through with "just enough votes" to catch up to him, said Navarro. 

"We have a very clear set of election laws, and what we need to do is go through the process as we did with Bush v. Gore," said Navarro. "We think he [Trump] won that election, and speculation about what Joe Biden might do, I think, is moot at this point."

His comments came after Bartiromo asked what the future for Trump's new executive order would be with Biden expecting to take office in January. 

Navarro also defended the order, telling Bartiromo that U.S. capital should not be "used to finance Chinese militarization, particularly weapons that are going to be used to kill Americans. … We are tackling Chinese companies that mean to do America harm."

He added that Chinese law also allows the Communist Party to lay claim to any company opening in China so that it "becomes effectively an organ of the Chinese government," and that is something that "we simply can't tolerate."
