"Ordinary folks are making money," Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump’s assistant for economic policy and director of the National Economic Council, told The Detroit News in an interview. “For the first time in 20 years, the whole range of the workforce is prospering. It’s not just the top — it’s everybody. I don’t know where that’s going to lead, but it’s very heartening.” What that means for the hometown auto industry is less clear.

POLITICS 09/18/2018 12:21 am ET Gary Cohn said the JPMorgan Chase CEO, derided last week by the president, has what it takes for the White House. By Ed Mazza President Donald Trump’s former top economic adviser just named a New York billionaire who he believes would make a “phenomenal president.” And it’s not Trump. Gary Cohn, who resigned as director of the National Economic Council earlier this year, told Reuters that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon has what it takes to run the country. “Jamie would be a spectacular president,” he told the news agency. “After having seen the inside of the Oval Office and worked inside there for hours upon hours a day, it’s in many respects very similar to running a complex multi-national global” company.
