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.”

Trump’s ‘craziness’ will drive Mexico to find other sources of soybeans — permanently hurting US farmers: Ex-diplomat
President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.
Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.
Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.
On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying
President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.
The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.
"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
