Since former Goldman Sachs executive Gary Cohn’s humiliating downfall, insiders have been wondering who will take Cohn’s place as President Donald Trump’s chief economic adviser.
CNBC reports that Larry Kudlow from the CNBC network is the leading contender to fill Cohn’s no-doubt expensive loafers. What’s more, Kudlow is willing and ready to take over the official responsibilities if called upon.
Trump has clearly been frustrated with the rigid establishmentarian nature of his administration and wants to break free and be himself.
Bringing in Kudlow would free Trump of the burden of having to wrangle with Cohn and his Goldman Sachs cronies on everything.
Now, CNBC might just be running water for their guy Kudlow to some extent. Other candidates are still in the game, including trade adviser Peter Navarro, the point man on Trump’s tariffs.
More importantly, Kudlow is ANTI-tariff and told Trump not to do it. He has criticized tariffs in multiple segments and even reported that the economy was suffering from “trade war jitters.”
Kudlow might be a smart fellow, but he is clearly not fully on board with President Trump’s vision.
SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check
Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.
Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.
The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.
The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.
Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”
Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.
Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
