Mr. Kudlow declined to comment.

Larry Kudlow, the longtime CNBC personality and an economist in the Reagan administration, has emerged as the frontrunner to become President Donald Trump's new head of the National Economic Council, the White House's top economic advisor.

Trump was still hearing last-minute pleas from opponents of the tariff plan, and White House officials said they couldn't predict how the day would shake out. Cohn had broken publicly with President Trump over his response to violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. last summer, and was rumored to have considered leaving at the time.

However, a firm decision has not been made Christopher P. Liddell, worked as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for Microsoft and later for General Motors. But Knight was uninterested, officials were quoted as saying.

"Chris has been in the White House since January of 2017, seems to get along with Jared Kushner as well as John Kelly". That includes the way the government buys technology or the services it offers citizens online. After joining General Motors in 2010, he helped guide the automaker's recovery from bankruptcy, the report said.
