A Saturday afternoon interview between Fox News weekend anchor Leland Vittert and White House National Trade Council Director Peter Navarro ended on a contentious note as Navarro accused Vittert of being “very overbearing” and consistently “interrupting” his attempts to answer questions.

The “America’s News Headquarters” conversation on U.S. trade policy toward China began with Vittert pressing Navarro on the “serious consequences” that will occur should China manipulate their currency.

Navarro . “What’s happening with China now as we have methodically put tariffs on as China has basically refused to negotiate in good faith. We have seen China lower their currency. Since tariffs have started the Chinese yuan has gone down 12% offsetting much of the tariffs that we imposed, so China’s bearing the burden. The other thing China does is lower prices, so we have seen virtually no inflation.”

“You’ve got to back off here,” said a clearly irritated Navarro after another interruption about farmers who say they are hurt by the policy.

“I’ll try to roll off the set,” joked Vittert. “I ask the questions, you answer them. You’ve just said the farmers were made whole.”

“You know, this hostility is personally to me …” said Navarro after another series of crosstalk.

“Usually people ask questions and they get an answer,” said Vittert.

“All you keep doing is interrupting me,” said Navarro, getting angry. “That’s all you do here. You roll back the tape here – all you do is when I start to ask a question.”

“Clearly not an answer, just a filibuster,” Vittert said. “Gotta run …”

“‘Gotta run,’” Navarro mocked, “After you interrupted me probably 30 times. This is shameful sir.”
