During a gaggle with reporters on Wednesday, Larry Kudlow, the director of the White House National Economic Council, said he would “never” take documents off of President Donald Trump’s desk, as his predecessor, Gary Cohn is purported to have done.

According to tweets from CNN and CNBC reporters, Kudlow also defended Cohn against the claims made about him in Bob Woodward’s new book “Fear.”
