Larry Kudlow, the top White House economic adviser, said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump “loves facts.”
During a CNBC event Wednesday morning, Kudlow told host Jim Kramer that he loves his White House position because “it’s not so much a job, it’s an honor.”
“It’s the most fun I’ve ever had, if you want to know the truth,” Kudlow said.
Kramer wondered what Kudlow does to “get the president’s attention and keep his attention.”
“What happens if he doesn’t agree with you?” Kramer asked.
“You know, look, I will say this, President Trump has been very open, very assessable to me,” Kudlow insisted. “He’s just been great he’s open and in meetings with five or six or eight, he’ll go to me, ‘Larry, what do you think?’ I tell him. It’s my job. I tell him.”
Kudlow went on to say that Trump “enjoys the back and forth, to his credit.”
“I think he’s greatly underrated, in that respect,” the economic adviser opined. “He thinks and processes. He loves facts, figures, charts. He’s very attentive. When he disagrees he’ll let you know.”

"When you watch what’s happening in Portland, thankfully everything right now is peaceful, but does it sort of give you that knee-jerk reaction where your hackles kind of go up, just given everything your family has been through?" Cabrera asked.
"My hackles don’t really go down anymore," Bro replied. "I am constantly tracking these things around the country as they happen. Yeah, I think after two years ago, mine will never completely go down again."
