Larry Kudlow was gaggling on the driveway when the lid was called.
Japan trade talks: "Going full speed as we talk." On PM Abe: "Good man. He is one of my favorites. He is one of the president's favorites. We'd love to make a trading deal with them. He's been extremely cooperative."
On why Trump takes credit when the market is up but blames others when it's down: "Shocking."
And he said: "It's a roaring bull market. Give the guy some credit."
On immigration policy and impact on the economy: "We are working with business on this issue.... Some people say the promise of a stronger border... has actually helped wages and helped home prices."
On Iranian oil sanctions threat: "Oil prices fell today. That's your answer."
