Larry Kudlow For White House Economic Advisor

Larry Kudlow’s personal relationship with President Trump, his credibility with conservatives and Republicans on and off Capitol Hill, and most importantly, his ability to channel President Trump instead of trying to impose his own ideas make him the ideal candidate for the job of Chairman of the National Economic Council – we strongly urge the President to select Mr. Kudlow for the position without delay.

Critics bash Trump for not listening — but offer no solutions

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Trump is engaging in global brinkmanship on two fronts [tariffs and North Korea]. He may fail, but his aggressive moves represent clean breaks from the stale, failed orthodoxy of both Democratic and Republican presidents. That’s what America desperately needed — and it’s what many of the current critics said they wanted. Of course, they said that before Trump ended up in the Oval Office and began doing things his way.

Let's Put A Tariff On Snobs

Kurt Schlicter, Townhall

To the extent free trade has a bad name, it’s because the free traders are less concerned with actual free trade than with the purity of their doctrine. Our voters are not going to support a system where they are getting the short end of the stick, nor should they. How about we demand equal trade terms, and when we don’t get them we make it painful? Because if someone has to suffer the pain that comes with unfair trade, I vote it be the people trading unfairly.

Americans should applaud Trump for starting to end our nation's wholesale surrender on trade

Scott Paul, Fox News

Instead of attacking the president, the critics should instead show us their own plans to stop the economic bleeding in America’s industrial belt. Because too often, it’s all about President Trump. He’s regularly accused of looking to the past when he speaks of industry, and specifically of steel. But the people in our steel mill towns know their communities won’t ever again look like they did in the 1950s. That’s not what they’re asking for; they’re simply asking to be included in America’s future.

Why Is the GOP Terrified of Tariffs?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

We should tax foreign-made goods and use the revenue, dollar for dollar, to cut taxes on domestic production. The idea is not to keep foreign goods out, but to induce foreign companies to move production here. We have a strategic asset no one else can match. We control access to the largest richest market on earth, the USA. And just as states charge higher tuition on out-of state students at their top universities, we should charge a price of admission for foreign producers to get into America's markets.

Why Andrew Jackson Instead of Ronald Reagan?

President Donald Trump's choice of Andrew Jackson as his Oval Office muse shows President Trump knows his presidential history, and he’s chosen the right inspiration for the challenges that are before him.

Free Trade vs. The Republican Party

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The economic nationalism and protectionism of Hamilton, Madison, Jackson, and Henry Clay, and the Party of Lincoln, McKinley, Teddy Roosevelt, and Coolidge, of all four presidents on Mount Rushmore, made America the greatest and most self-sufficient republic in history.
