Trump announces Larry Kudlow for economic adviser role on Twitter

President Trump on Thursday announced his choice for the White House economic adviser role.

“Larry Kudlow will be my Chief Economic Advisor as Director of the National Economic Council. Our Country will have many years of Great Economic & Financial Success, with low taxes, unparalleled innovation, fair trade and an ever expanding labor force leading the way!” Trump tweeted.

Multiple outlets reported on Trump’s pick Wednesday, and according to NPR, Kudlow has “accepted the post.”

Kudlow will replace Gary Cohn, who resigned shortly after Trump announced tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

In a piece on Trump’s selection, the New York Times wrote, “Trump loves big personalities, live television, the stock market and loyalty. In choosing Larry Kudlow, a CNBC television commentator, to serve as the next director of the National Economic Council, he has checked all those boxes.”
