Kudlow: Trump presidency ends ‘war against business’


Conservative commentator Larry Kudlow says Donald Trump’s presidency spells the end of the “war against success.”

“The war against business and the war against success is ending with Donald Trump. And I think that’s a key confidence factor,” the CNBC senior contributor told radio host John Catsimatidis in an interview airing Sunday on AM 970 in New York.

Kudlow, who said “Trump is a breath of fresh air,” cited lower taxes and fewer regulations as reasons why Trump’s presidency will bring an end to what he called the war on business.

{mosads}Kudlow, an informal adviser to Trump’s campaign who was briefly considered for the post of chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, called for lower corporate tax rates for both small and large businesses.

“If they wait to the end of the year for this business tax cut or whatever, we’re going to waste the 2017 economy because people are not going to move, they’re going to postpone activity,” he said.

“Trump needs a ‘W,’ he needs a win. He needs a ‘W.’ And the sooner he can get that ‘W’ on tax reform and growth, the better off he’ll be, the more he’ll shut up his critics, the more he’ll shut up The New York Times and all the rest of it,” he said.

Kudlow said it will be interesting to see what Trump says when he addresses Congress on Tuesday.

“The big question is what is he going to say, how much detail is he going to give, is he going to be more specific than he has in the past?” Kudlow said.
