Top White House economist Larry Kudlow said Tuesday that tariffs scheduled to hit Chinese goods on Dec. 15 are "still on the table," and that he couldn't confirm a Wall Street Journal report that negotiators were "laying the groundwork" to delay them. Speaking at the Journal's CEO Council meeting in Washington, Kudlow said there wasn't a "definitive decision" on the tariffs. Earlier Tuesday, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told the same conference that prospects for a phase-one deal were "pretty good." U.S. stocks /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +1.48% momentarily lost some ground following Kudlow's remarks but have since been trading slightly higher to little-changed in late-morning Tuesday action.
