Peter Navarro: Trump’s Economic Adviser?

I am getting mixed signals on Navarro. He seems to be positive about Keynesian stimulus here, and is a mercantilist on trade (which isn’t necessarily bad).

But he seems hostile to conventional Keynesianism in this interview, and even (if I am not mistaken) implying that public infrastructure will be private?

Admittedly, he is not wrong on the disaster of free trade and the collapse of manufacturing, and the need for rebuilding US manufacturing.
