Trump tells people he is selecting Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn

Navarro China is flooding world with ‘lethal’ products

His departure has been worrisome for Capitol Hill Republicans and business groups who have been concerned that Trump may install more protectionist economic policies amid a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

President Trump on Tuesday endorsed using tariffs as leverage in trade negotiations, saying "we wouldn't do almost as well" without them - a belief he said was shared by Larry Kudlow, a top candidate to replace Gary Cohn as the director of the National Economic Council. Cohn reportedly left the job in part because of disagreements with the president over his support of steel and aluminum tariffs - tariffs Kudlow also strongly opposes.

Why? It's because he's seen him on TV. "He now has come around to believing in tariffs". His departure from the West Wing was announced last week and followed his break with Mr. Trump over the president's plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Kudlow, a regular guest on CNBC, is close to President Trump and a veteran of the Reagan administration.

Liddell, like the former Goldman Sachs executive Cohn, has a background in crunching numbers and dealing with Wall Street.

Cohn played a central role in helping Trump enact a sweeping tax overhaul law, coordinating with members of Congress.

Cohn's departure comes amid a period of unparalleled tumult in the Trump administration, and aides worry that more staffers may soon head for the doors. And then you kind of work out a deal and I think that's what he's done.

Trump has been considering a potential replacement for Cohn as director of the National Economic Council.

In a recent CNBC interview, Kudlow castigated the president's tariffs as "prosperity killers" and encouraged Cohn to stay at the White House.
