Larry Kudlow Says He Would Never Take Papers Off Trump’s Desk, Questions Woodward’s Reporting That Cohn Did


Larry Kudlow, director of the White House National Economic Council, briefly addressed the controversy concerning his predecessor earlier today.

During a gaggle with reporters talking trade, Kudlow was asked whether he would remove papers from President Donald Trump‘s desk to keep him from signing them, something that Bob Woodward reports in his new book that Gary Cohn did.

Kudlow categorically denied he would ever do anything like that, and even questioned Woodward’s reporting:

Cohn put out a statement yesterday that read, “This book does not accurately portray my experience at the White House. I am proud of my service in the Trump Administration, and I continue to support the President and his economic agenda.” As Axios noted, this wasn’t actually a denial of Woodward’s specific claims.
