White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow dismissed "voting rights" as a non-starter request from Democrats in stalled talks over a coronavirus stimulus package, arguing on CNBC Thursday that it's part of a "liberal left wishlist" and that it's "not our game."

What he's saying: "We've acted, President Trump has acted forcefully because we couldn't reach a deal with the Democrats, they're asking too much money," Kudlow said.

  • "So much of the Democratic asks are really liberal left wish-list. We don't want to have, you know, voting rights and aid to aliens, and so forth. That's not our game, and the president can't accept that kind of deal,"
