American political analyst and commentator Lawrence Kudlow can be appointed as the U.S. president Donald Trump’s senior economic advisor, replacing Gary Cohn, who leaves the post. CNN reported on Monday.
According to its source, familiar with the President’s administration, Trump has already told his assistants that he has settled on Kudlow as a candidate. However, the company notes that the president may change his mind at the last minute. Therefore, before there is an official statement, it is too early to be confident that Kudlow will become the new economic advisor.
Lawrence Kudlow, aged 70, is a famous conservative analyst and commentator. He advised Trump on taxation during the 2016 presidential campaign. It is noteworthy, Kudlow doesn’t support the policy of Gary Cohn, who strictly opposes the introduction of import duties on steel and aluminum in the USA.
