White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said recent trade talks with China “went very well.”
“The phone call the night before last with Secretary Mnuchin and Lighthizer and Vice Premier Liu He went very well. That’s important.” Kudlow said Friday on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street. “The phone lines have been open during this period and the negotiations have been proceeding.”
