Neither the White House or Kudlow are commenting on the reports.

"Chris has been in the White House since January of 2017, seems to get along with Jared Kushner as well as John Kelly".

Business leaders, meanwhile, continue to sound the alarm about the potential economic fallout from tariffs, with the president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce raising the specter of a global trade war.

Navarro has always been in the fringe backwaters of academia. I think those days are over, personally.

Trump, 36, says she doesn't "like to leave a lot up to fate", but at the moment, the Post says, "Ivanka - whose first name has become a brand identity - controls increasingly little of the world she inhabits". 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. As a result, they are watching closely to see who Trump picks as Cohn's replacement - and whether that person will bring the same knowledge of the financial markets as the former Goldman Sachs executive. They spoke only on condition of anonymity to discuss internal administration roles.

Trump has not made a firm decision, those briefed on the process said.

"Like Cohn, Kudlow is a free trade advocate, co-writing an op-ed in the National Review earlier this month saying of Trump's tariffs: "...now we are imposing sanctions on our own country, putting up tariffs supposedly to make Americans more prosperous. Officials, however, said a signing ceremony was unlikely.
