Dr M to Jho Low: I'm proud I can 'put words in the mouth' of US govt

SERDANG: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has responded to fugitive businessman Low Taek Jho’s allegation that the Prime Minister was "putting words into the mouth" of the US Government in relation to Malaysia’s arrest of the Equanimity superyacht.

Low, also known as Jho Low, claimed that Malaysia was “putting words into the mouth” of the US authorities by saying the yacht’s arrival in the country last week was after negotiations with the Americans.

Asked for his comment on Low’s statement, Dr Mahathir in his trademark sarcastic wit replied: “I am very proud that I can put words in the mouth of the US Government. I must be greater than Trump (US President Donald Trump).
