During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis, Kudlow made the case that former President John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, laid the groundwork for the conservative movement for lower taxes.

“The point I’m trying to make is it’s a tragedy today … that the Democratic Party has written the JFK tax-cut legacy out of their history,” Kudlow said. “Hillary’s out there trying to raise taxes on rich people and rich corporations and capital gains and, you know, the whole story.”
