Kudlow Could Be the Perfect Fit for Trump's White House

Kudlow Could Be the Perfect Fit for Trump's White House

The White House revolving door continues. This time now it is Larry Kudlow's turn to be the chief economic guy. Is he a good fit? Yes, I think that he is for two reasons:

(1) He isn't going to disagree with President Trump - He is smart enough to know that to get along you go along. Remember, it takes a "yes" man to be on President's Trump's team. Although he used to disagree and almost bully people on his show, this is not TV financial media. This is the White House....Trump's White House. In regards to the linked article, I doubt Kudlow will have anything negative to say about tariffs and trade.

(2) He is a main stream economist - Just like most economists, there is not an economy that he doesn't like. All he sees is lollipops and rainbows when it comes to the economy. I like optimistic people. I also prefer them. If you are the chief economist, I prefer a little realism. President Trump is all about the positive of anything he sets in motion. Our new chief economy guy will optimistically sell anything that is on Trump's agenda.

The question is how many more Type A maverick type of individuals does he have left to fire?

From everything I've heard and read he's a good choice.

@jmarkb - he is a safe pick for sure
