National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said Friday that former Vice President Joe Biden has 'got to get his facts right' on the Trump economy.
He said the Democratic presidential candidate, whom he considers a friend, is wrong about the effect of the President Trump's policies on the middle class.
'So I think Joe Biden’s got to get this facts right and he might want to reexamine our policies, we’re getting down what we hope to get done,' he said in a Fox Business interview.

Kudlow was responding to Biden's claims in his announcement speech that 'the stock market is roaring, but you don't feel it' and the middle class was hurt by the Republican president's tax cut.
The senior Trump adviser claimed afterward, when DailyMail.com asked him about Biden needing to get his facts straight, that he never criticized him in that way.
'No, no, not facts straight,' he contended. 'I happen to be personally a big fan of Joe Biden. I said, all the years on my TV show, I tried to persuade him to be a supply-sider,and I didn't succeed, and so I would ask him to look at the current facts, which raises the whole issue again.'
As far as Americans' feelings about the economy are concerned, he said, 'Yes.'
'The answer is yes, yes and yes. They feel a lot better, they're more confident about their personal finances, high numbers on the polls. The president's economic approval rating, in really all the major polls, is like 58, 60 percent,' he said.
Trump's economic approval rating reached a new high this week, as the unemployment rate dropped to 3.6 percent, a 49-year record low.
A CNN poll published Thursday, before the monthly jobs numbers posted, put Trump's economic approval rating at 56 percent.
It's one of the few issue areas where Trump is in black with most voters.
