  • Nikki Haley's savage own of Larry Kudlow is one for the ages (CNN Praise for Nikki)

    (CNN)Nikki Haley is not to be trifled with -- especially by the likes of a TV anchor-turned-newly-minted White House aide. Larry Kudlow, the chief economic adviser for President Donald Trump, learned that lesson the (very) hard way on Tuesday after he gave an roundly dismissive interview on Haley's promise of future sanctions against Russia. "She got ahead of the curve," Kudlow told reporters gathered near Mar-a-Lago. "She's done a great job, she's a very effective ambassador. There might have been some momentary confusion about that." It felt -- and sounded -- like a rhetorical pat on the head. Sure, Nikki...
  • Trump puts the brakes on new Russian sanctions, reversing Haley’s announcement

    President Trump on Monday put the brakes on a preliminary plan to impose additional economic sanctions on Russia, walking back a Sunday announcement by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley that the Kremlin had swiftly denounced as “international economic raiding.” Preparations to punish Russia anew for its support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government over the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria caused consternation at the White House. Haley had said on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” that sanctions on Russian companies behind the equipment related to Assad’s alleged chemical weapons attack would be announced Monday by Treasury...

    WEST PALM BEACH FLORIDA-Nikki R. Haley, the ambassador to the United Nations, fired back at the White House on Tuesday, denying that she had been confused when she announced on Sunday that the Trump administration would impose new sanctions on Russia. "With all due respect, I don't get confused," she told Dana Perino of Fox News. She was responding to a comment earlier in the day by Larry Kudlow, the president's new economic advisor who was briefing reporters in Florida before President Trump's meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan. "She got ahead of the curve,” Mr. Kudlow said....

But that plan was re-evaluated and then put on hold over the weekend...On Monday, a new memo went out from the NSC saying that additional sanctions were under consideration, but no decision had been made.

    BET founder Robert Johnson told CNBC Friday that he believes the Trump economy has helped the African American community. Johnson, who was America's first black billionaire, appeared on "Squawk Box" to discuss the direction of the economy following the most recent jobs report. In spite of a slightly lower-than-expected number (103,000 new jobs vs the expected 193,000), Johnson was optimistic, citing a January report that touted the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for African Americans. "When you look at that [January report], you have to say something is going right. You have to take encouragement from what's happening in the labor force...

    So, does the Left hate Christianity?  There have been a more than a few disconcerting moments from the news media and others, where they’ve attacked people’s faiths. You had The View’s Joy Behar mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s faith, saying he was mentally ill in February. Behar apologized to Pence personally, which we only found out through an ABC shareholders meeting earlier this month. Pence accepted the apology, but wanted a public one as well. On March 13, Behar publicly apologized (via WaPo): “I think Vice President Pence is right; I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith, and I...

    President Trump has chosen economist Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn as his senior economic advisor and leader of the National Economic Council. Kudlow, best known for his time as a host on CNBC of "The Kudlow Report," will join the administration in the coming weeks. Cohn is leaving on good terms after disagreeing with the President on the implementation of tariffs. "This is Gary Cohn's last meeting in the Cabinet and of the Cabinet. He has been terrific. He may be a globalist but I still like him," Trump said last week. "And he is a globalist there's...

    Media personality Larry Kudlow, a loquacious and energetic advocate of low taxes and free trade, has emerged as a leading candidate to replace Gary Cohn as director of the White House’s National Economic Council, people briefed on the process said. President Trump has spoken twice in recent days with the longtime CNBC commentator about succeeding Cohn, according to three people familiar with the discussions, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. While the phone conversations with Kudlow — one Sunday and another Monday — were favorable, Trump has yet to make a...

    Larry Kudlow is the leading contender to head President Donald Trump's National Economic Council and would take the job if offered it, CNBC's Jim Cramer reported Monday. Trump has not formally offered the job, but Kudlow is a leading choice of not only Trump but also some of his advisors to replace Gary Cohn as the president's top economic advisor. A White House official confirmed Kudlow is on the list of candidates but said the administration did not have personnel announcements to make. Kudlow declined to comment. Kudlow, a CNBC senior contributor and longtime on-air personality, helped to craft economic...

    Warts and all, if I were a voting member of Congress, I would certainly cast a yea for the tax-cut plans passed by the Senate and House that are headed for conference (to work out minor differences) in the weeks ahead. These bills are not perfect, especially on the individual side. But the business tax cuts will generate an investment boom in the years ahead. And those cuts will bring economic growth back to its historical norm of three to four percent. Incredibly, the Joint Committee on Taxation, or JTC, scored growth for the Senate plan at less than one...

    As the House and Senate work their way through the tax-cut-and-reform effort, let me make one thing clear: Both plans are pro-growth where the economic power comes from the business side. And where it comes from the personal side, there will be very little growth. That was always the bet. During the spring and summer of 2016, economist Steve Moore and I, working with Trump campaign officials Steven Mnuchin and Stephen Miller, saw major tax reductions for large and small businesses as the centerpiece of the candidate’s tax policy. Whatever Congress came up with on the personal side, so be...

    President-elect Donald Trump's administration is planning to nominate political commentator and economic analyst Larry Kudlow to chair the Council of Economic Advisers.

The council sits within the executive office and advises the president on economic policy. Trump's transition team and Kudlow's office...

    Donald Trump’s private meeting Thursday with Senate Republicans — designed to foster greater party unity ahead of the national convention in Cleveland — grew combative as the presumptive presidential nominee admonished three senators who have been critical of his candidacy and predicted they would lose their reelection bids, according to two Republican officials with direct knowledge of the exchanges. Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona....

    The original Magna Carta was a charter agreed to by King John of England in 1215. It just celebrated its 801st anniversary. So no, I wasn’t there. But that charter has become part of an important, iconic, political myth that the deal between an unpopular king and rebellious barons marked the beginning of individual English freedoms, personal liberties, and due-process protection of individuals under the law. Magna Carta has also been cited as providing the essential foundation for the contemporary powers of Parliament and legal principles such as habeas corpus. That’s the mythology, and it’s an important one. So while...

    “Overthrow the establishment. Now's the time,” said the CNBC senior contributor who also hosts a syndicated radio-talk show. "Overthrow the establishment," urged Kudlow, who was a former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan. “We need a different model. In other words, zero interest rates, or negative interest rates, and tons and tons of government spending for all these G-7 countries have not worked,” he said. “We have global stagnation, a virtual global recession. And we have virtually no inflation,” he said “Something's got to change here,” he said. He offered his own solution to right the sinking U.S. economic ship....
