Trump signals Kudlow is front-runner for top economic job

Chris Liddell 59 has earned respect at the White House for his work on projects like information technology modernization and electronic health records

"Larry has been a friend of mine for a very long time", Trump said.

It's an interesting choice. According to published reports, Trump asked Cohn directly to support tariffs. As reported by Newsweek, Kudlow was forced to resign from the investment bank Bear Stearns in 1994 as a result of his cocaine and alcohol problems.

Kudlow would also be a controversial choice as he is a recovering alcoholic who once had a $100,000 per month cocaine habit. And it would also likely give tech more access to the White House in the same way that Cohn, a former president of Goldman Sachs, gave Wall Street access to it.

Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, who has known Navarro for more than a decade, described him as "someone who certainly speaks his mind and is not afraid to present ideas and data that are contrarian".

"I needed long-term care, and I didn't have any money". He served in the Office of Management and Budget during President Ronald Reagan's administration.

Its main objective is to plant seeds so that one day a human colony can start a new life in the Red Planet. SpaceX rockets are being created to remain completely reusable between voyages.

Liddell's economic views are less clear.

Trump has spoken to Kudlow multiple times over the past week, a separate person familiar with the matter said, but Kudlow hasn't been formally offered the job yet and hasn't decided whether he would accept it.

Stephen Moore, a Heritage Foundation economist who worked with Kudlow on Trump's campaign tax plan, told The Hill that Kudlow is "definitely one of the top three" candidates to become the next director of the National Economic Council, but Trump has yet to make a decision.

Economic analyst Lawrence "Larry" Kudlow appears on CNBC at the New York Stock Exchange, (NYSE) in New York, U.S., March 7, 2018.
