Trump Chewed Out Larry Kudlow For Admitting That US Consumers Pay His Tariffs, Not China’s Government

The New York Daily News reports:

Larry Kudlow is finding out the hard way that pleasing the Donald and telling the truth is a tough balancing act. The White House economics czar reportedly got chewed out by President Trump for admitting that American consumers will pay the price for the White House’s tariff-happy trade war.

“Trump called Larry, and they had it out,” a White House official told us. Trump hired Kudlow, a former CNBC talking head, to be the public face of his economic policy.

So the mercurial commander-in-chief was not best pleased to hear that Kudlow contradicted Trump’s debunked claim that China pays the new tariffs slapped on everything from iPhones to washing machines.
