Trump Speaks with Larry Kudlow About Joining White House as Economic Adviser

President Trump has spoken twice in recent days with the longtime CNBC commentator Larry Kudlow about succeeding Gary Cohn as director of the White House’s National Economic Council, reports The Washington Post.

Beyond the phone calls with the president, Kudlow has also spoken with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Jared Kushner, according to WaPo.

Kudlow is a decent guy and can best be described as a free market Keynesian. That is, there are a lot of other names being floated around for the position that are a lot worse.

I hope he gets it, he won't do any good in attempting to influence Trump in a free market direction but at least he won't make things worse.
