Trump: Kudlow has 'good chance' to become top economic adviser

Source: The Hill




BY VICKI NEEDHAM - 03/13/18 10:45 AM EDT




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. "But in this case, I think that’s good."

Trump, who argued he wants differing opinions in the White House, said Kudlow has "come around to believing in tariffs as also a negotiating point."

5. Krugman on Kudlow

I mean, Kudlow is to economics what William Kristol is to political strategy: if he says something, you know it’s wrong. When he ridiculed “bubbleheads” who thought overvalued real estate could bring down the economy, you should have rushed for the bomb shelters; when he proclaimed Bush a huge success, because a rising stock market is the ultimate verdict on a presidency (unless the president is a Democrat), you should have known that the Bush era would end with epochal collapse.

8. +1, being wrong about reality does not hurt your career as a Conservative.

It's a feature, not a bug.

9. Ludlow graduated from University of Rochester, New York w/ a degree in history (BA) in 1969

 

He attended Princeton but dropped out, might have been after Vietnam war cooled down, he got a safe lottery number or he couldn't handle the academic rigors of an Ivy League school?

14. Why does ANYONE want to work for him? Do they have no self-respect?

Trump treats everyone like dogs, and he ends up firing everyone in a humiliating way. WHY would anyone with cred want to subject himself/herself to that?
