A well-known face is reportedly the leading contender to replace Gary Cohn as President Trump’s economic adviser.

Cohn resigned last week after Trump’s decision to increase tariffs for steel and aluminum.

And now, CNBC’s Larry Kudlow is the leading contender to get the job.


Jim Cramer was the first to break the news.

“I think he has the inside track,” Cramer said. “The president, I believe, is listening to Larry Kudlow on our air and likes what he hears.”
