WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday named conservative commentator Larry Kudlow as his choice to lead the National Economic Council, one day after the CNBC contributor made the announcement on-air.

 

Trump, in an early morning post on Twitter, praised Kudlow, who is replacing Gary Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs Group Inc <GS.N> executive and Democrat who stepped down as the top White House economic adviser earlier this month.
