Trump says he looks at Kudlow "very strongly" and he has a "very good chance" at job
Trump on Larry Kudlow
Kudlow is up for Cohn's job as the leader of Trump's economic team.
On December 7, 2007, Kudlow said: "There's no recession coming. The pessimistas were wrong. It's not going to happen. . . . The Bush boom is alive and well. It's finishing up it sixth consecutive year with more to come."
In any case, Kudlow is an unabashed free trade supporter so the market will cheer his appointment, if it comes.
