Kudlow Rages That Trump “Doesn’t Make Things Up” After Trump Busted Lying About Request By Indian PM

Beltway Breakfast reports:

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow on Tuesday denied that President Donald Trump had lied about being asked to mediate the long-running dispute between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir border region.

“The President doesn’t make things up,” Kudlow said when asked whether Trump had fabricated the claim. He added that in his opinion, the query was “a very rude question” which would be better handled by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

On Monday, Trump claimed that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked him to help settle the years-long conflict between India and Pakistan, both nuclear powers. But shortly after that, a spokesperson for Modi said in a statement that that no such request has been made.
