National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow told reporters outside the White House on Thursday that President Trump is the first president “in decades to show some backbone” on Chinese economic aggression.

Kudlow said that the lowering of Chinese trade barriers would result in wins for both countries. “If you tear down barriers and you play by the rules, both sides should benefit,” he predicted.

“Here’s President Trump – the first guy in decades to show some backbone on this issue and some seriousness,” Kudlow said, praising the president’s approach.

The rest of the world knows of China’s transgressions, as well, the former CNBC analyst told reporters.

As for the results of the trade volleys? Kudlow said he sees a “pot of gold” at the end of the spat.
