President Trump on Tuesday said Larry Kudlow has a good chance of taking the helm of the White House’s National Economic Council.
Trump told reporters ahead of a trip to California that he is taking a hard look at Kudlow to replace former top economic adviser Gary Cohn.
“I’m looking at Larry Kudlow very strongly,” he told reporters on the South Lawn.
“I’ve known him a long time. We don’t agree on everything,” he said.
Kudlow, a former CNBC host who was an informal economic adviser to Trump’s campaign, showed some signs that he has shifted away from his free-trade stance and his opposition to tariffs.
