Skip to comments.Kudlow: Trump didn’t know about Huawei executive’s arrest before dining with Chinese leader

President Trump was not aware of the unusual arrest of a major Chinese technology executive when he sat down to dinner recently with Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow.
Huawei Technologies Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada on Dec. 1 on a U.S. extradition warrant. Huawei is suspected of evading American sanctions on Iran, a possibility that U.S. prosecutors have been investigating since 2016.
The arrest was made on the same day that Trump and Xi met for dinner amid high-level trade and national security talks in Buenos Aires. An unnamed senior U.S. official with direct knowledge of the matter told The Washington Post last week that Trump learned of the arrest only after the meal had concluded and reacted with intense anger.

Deep state knife in the back pure and simple.
Huawei ( wah-way ) is a word for ‘lonely’ in Thai
That's what they call "plausible deniability."
The President knew in very general terms something like this arrest could occur...he didn't want or need to know the details.
I wonder what would happen if Trump invited the whiz kids responsible for this to a Presidential working lunch and then in front of them signed a Presidential pardon with gift pens to each?
Maybe this is why President Trump is getting a new Chief Of Staff.
See post 5.
Example of just more GOSSIP journalism.
Pardon for who? What are you talking about?
Or is Bolton giving Trump cover?
(I’m not a Bolton fan, btw.)
It really is amazing how you let the Washington Post lead you around by the nose.
Trudeau trying to screw things up for Trump?
It was intentional imo
The Trudeau govt cooperating with deep state to sabotage Trumps relationship with Chinese President
“It was intentional imo

I am afraid you hit the nail on the head.
The WaPo and other news outlets are only reporting what Kudlow said on Fox News this morning. Are you saying that Kudlow is gossiping?
You are WRONG.
Read the article again.
If you have trouble spotting the fake news, let me know and I will point it out to you.
Exactly how I see it too.
At about 10:09 on the tape Kudlow says Trump didn't know about the arrest when it happened.
Kudlow’s statement is not in question.
Read more carefully.
Ask if you need help.
