FILE PHOTO: Economic analyst Lawrence "Larry" Kudlow appears on CNBC at the New York Stock Exchange, (NYSE) in New York, U.S., March 7, 2018.

Kudlow, a CNBC contributor, is a long-time friend and informal adviser to Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump signaled on Tuesday that conservative commentator Larry Kudlow is the front-runner to become the top economic adviser at the White House, though he said he was also speaking with other candidates. "I have to tell you, personally, I am urging Gary Cohn to stay and fight for another day".

Cohn quit the White House last week after Trump refused to heed his advice against imposing a steel tariff.

That's according to reports Saturday that fingers Liddell as the likely next head of the National Economic Council, the policymaking advisory body that is now led by Gary Cohn. Cohn, who had been rumoured just weeks ago as a potential next Chief of Staff, will leave the White House in the coming weeks, CNN reported.

One of those allies, Japan, hit out immediately at the announcement, saying the moves "could have a grave impact on the economic relationship of Japan and the US", the world's 3rd and top economies respectively. The former Goldman Sachs executive - a strong supporter of free trade - said he would leave the administration after Trump committed to imposing steel and aluminum tariffs, despite pushback from US lawmakers and global officials.

Prominent supply-side economist Arthur Laffer also said he hoped Kudlow gets the position. "I can't talk to you", he said when reached on his cellphone.
