Tea Party Express Praises President Trump’s Appointment of Larry Kudlow

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, praises President Donald Trump’s appointment of economist and CNBC contributor Larry Kudlow to serve as director of the White House National Economic Council.

Tea Party Express Co-Founder and Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “Larry Kudlow has distinguished himself as one of the leading economic voices in America. He was one of the chief architects of the Reagan economic policies that brought America back from the brink of economic ruin in the 1980s and led to the longest period of peacetime growth in history. As America struggles to rebound from the anemic economic growth of the Obama era, his pro-growth principles are exactly what the economy needs and were employed in the recently enacted Trump tax cut and reform legislation.

“Larry understands that oppressive government regulations and high taxes will always stifle economic growth. That is why he has been a strong booster of President Trump’s tax and regulatory reforms, which are already growing the economy and putting more money into the pockets of working Americans.

“I have known and worked with Larry for many years as he served as economic advisor to both Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp. What he advised then remains true today: when we unleash the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of the American people by getting big government out of the way, economic growth will create prosperity across the board. We are beginning to see that again under President Trump, and with Larry at the helm of the President’s economic team, we are poised to realize that potential in full,” Russo concluded.
