Reuters  |  WASHINGTON 

(Reuters) - Larry Kudlow, the of the national economic council, said on Wednesday that has earned a tough response from the and other countries on trade, even though he has previously criticized "blanket" tariffs.

"has not played by the rules for a long time...I must say, as somebody who doesn't like tariffs, I think has earned a tough response," said Kudlow, adding he hoped a coalition of countries could act against on trade.

Kudlow said he was relieved by proposed exclusions for certain countries to Donald Trump's announced and aluminium tariffs, and that he did not think the tariffs would hurt the broader U.S.
