Larry Kudlow is among those under consideration to replace Gary Cohn as director of the National Economic Council, with Kudlow a CNBC TV personality with residences in New York City and Redding.
The White House announced Cohn’s resignation last week, with President Donald Trump quoted Tuesday by Bloomberg saying Kudlow has a “very good chance” of taking the place of Cohn. According to multiple reports, others under consideration include former Microsoft executive Chris Liddell and Peter Navarro, an advisor pressing for the U.S. to impose tariffs on steel imports.
The National Economic Council was established in 1993 to advise the president on economic issues, with 11 people having served as director.
