India has denied that its prime minister made such a request.
Asked by a journalist on Tuesday, if Mr. Trump had made the request, Kudlow answered “a rude question” and said the president of the United States “did nothing.”
“The president does nothing, that is a serious question in my opinion,” Kudlow replied.
The US presidential adviser declined to comment, but it was a better question for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo or national security adviser John Bolton.
“I’m out, it’s out of my way, it’s for Bolton, Pompeo and the president, so I don’t explain it.”
