CNBC’s economic analyst Larry Kudlow is reportedly President Donald Trump’s choice to replace Gary Cohn as Director of the National Economic Council.
CNBC reported that sources close to the White House have said the president offered Kudlow the appointment Tuesday night.
The Washington Post reported Kudlow has accepted the post, according to three sources familiar with the situation.
Kudlow previously served as an associate director of the Office of Managment and Budget (OMB) under President Ronald Reagan. Kudlow has served as an informal White House adviser over the past year.
Cohn stepped down last week over disagreements with Trump over his imposition of tariffs on aluminum and steel imports, although Kudlow has also been critical of the tariffs in recent media appearances.
This story is developing and will be updated once more information is forthcoming.
