Christopher Liddell Is Front-Runner to Become Trump's Top Economic Adviser

When asked last week about the possibility of joining the Trump administration, Kudlow told CNBC he didn't "want to talk through all those scenarios".

CHRIS Liddell, a former executive at Microsoft Corp and General Motors, is under consideration to become US President Donald Trump's top economic adviser, a White House official said on Sunday, confirming earlier media reports. He is known for his stalwart defense of Mr. Trump and conservative economic policies, such as low taxes and reduced spending.

Cramer reports that Trump is set to pick Kudlow despite the fact that the CNBC contributor strongly opposes Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum and is "the ultimate free trader". He had been a senior official at Goldman Sachs, a leading investment bank.

Cohn, who had been rumoured just weeks ago as a potential next Chief of Staff, will leave the White House in the coming weeks, CNN reported. Kudlow has also publicly disagreed with the tariffs.

When the president signed an "America First" proclamation last week placing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, Navarro scored a pivotal victory for White House nationalists. Mexico, Canada and Australia have been exempted from the tariffs and Trump has left open the possibility that other nations could get exemptions. "China may be the only one".
