Trump confirms CNBC contributor Kudlow to be top economic adviser

  • Larry Kudlow U.S. President Donald Trump's new chief economic adviser is a fan of free trade who has publicly attacked Trump's new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports

While on the air, MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle repeatedly mocked Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump's pick for the National Economic Council.

Former OMB Director David Stockman discusses his experiences with President Trump's new top economist, Larry Kudlow.

The kiwi fell about a quarter of a U.S. cent early yesterday on news that the economy expanded 0.6 percent in the three months to December 31 versus an expected 0.8 percent as unfavourable weather weighed on agricultural output.

Mr Kudlow will replace Mr Cohn as head of the National Economic Council (NEC), a policy body created in 1993 that includes senior officials and specialists from across an array of policy areas.

When Trump offered Kudlow the job, he reportedly told Kudlow that his staff wasn't aware that he was offering him the job, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Sorry to bust up the jovial Thursday morning vibes with more garbage from the absolute last person anyone wants to keep hearing about, but I'm sadly unable to control these specific tides of fuckery. We don't agree on everything but in this case I think that's good.

That's why Wall Street will take a wait-and-see approach to find out how much influence the incoming Kudlow really has on policy.

Two years ago, he supported Mr Trump's presidential campaign, in particular the pledges to renew American infrastructure and cut taxes, becoming an informal Trump adviser in the process.

Kudlow served in the Regan administration when he helped craft the economic policy.

"As Larry Kudlow says, 'God's will'".

"The USD was boosted by comments from new economic adviser Kudlow that he would "buy USD and sell gold", said ANZ Bank rural economist Con Williams.

Trump seems increasingly determined to tax foreign imports, a policy that Kudlow personally opposes. He also believes that the ultimate guide to increasing tax revenue is economic growth through reducing tax rates and expansion.

Trump told reporters Tuesday that he was "very strongly" considering Kudlow for the position.

Kudlow has made some course corrections, putting him slightly more inline with the President.


"We need more smart, business-minded people who understand that this president is trying to make the United States more competitive with the rest of the world and provide much needed economic relief after many years of failed fiscal policies", he said. You don't go through these endless bureaucratic things and delays.
