President Donald Trump on considering Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn as the director of the White National House Economic Council.

After reportedly penning several resignation letters after the president blamed "both sides" for terrorist attacks conducted by white supremacists a year ago, Cohn stayed at the White House to shepherd tax reform. "He now has come around to believing in tariffs as a negotiating position".

During his sendoff to Cohn, Trump mentioned the dispute over tariffs, saying Cohn "is not quite as strong on those tariffs as we want". As a result, they are watching closely to see who Trump picks as Cohn's replacement - and whether that person will bring the same knowledge of the financial markets as the former Goldman Sachs executive.
