Jim Acosta: Trump made CNBC’s Larry Kudlow top pick for economic advisor because he likes to watch him on TV


President Donald Trump is reportedly considering CNBC analyst Larry Kudlow to replace newly-resigned chief economic adviser Gary Cohn — and CNN correspondent Jim Acosta has a theory as to why he was chosen.

“The president likes to watch people on TV, Larry Kudlow is somebody he likes to watch on TV,” Acosta told host Wolf Blitzer. “So that certainly means he’s probably high on the president’s list.”

“The president is from New York,” he said. “I suppose New York people do go back to New York but they probably don’t want the president to go back that quickly.”

“Another sign of the chaos here at the White House,” Acosta concluded.
