Trump economic aide talks about the U.S. as a world economic leader
The U.S. economy is leading the rest of the world by returning to a basic approach of cutting taxes and letting businesses know that government is back on their side, top Trump economic aide Larry Kudlow said Monday. “The U.S. is the hottest economy in the world today. We’re crushing it,” the former CNBC anchor said in a speech to the Economic Club of New York. “Capital is flowing here in huge quantities.” Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, derided the current gossipy culture in Washington that is more focused on scandal than it is on how well growth is doing under President Donald Trump. Trump spoke to the club just months before his upset victory in the November 2016 election.
