|The Council of Economic Advisers in 1949|
The White House Council of Economic Advisers, a long-standing White House body, decades old, is being demoted by the Trump administration, reports The Wall Street Journal.
In a statement Wednesday the White House said that the president’s cabinet won't include the Chairman of the CEA.
This, of course, means President Trump will be getting all his advice from nutjob protectionists.
The free trade advocate Larry Kudlow was under consideration to head the CEA, which no doubt had some role in operatives in the Trump administration sabotaging the role of the head of the CEA. They probably have sabotaged the chances for Kudlow actually getting the position, also.
It's all about advancing anti-free trade thinking these days.
