Larry Kudlow: ‘Difficult Tradeoffs’ May Be Needed on Coronavirus and Economy
The day after President Donald Trump blasted off an all-caps tweet hinting that he’d soon pivot away from social distancing to combat the coronavirus pandemic in order to jumpstart the economy, his chief economic adviser said “the president is right” and we may need to make “difficult tradeoffs.”
“But the president is right,” he exclaimed. “The cure can’t be worse than the disease and we’re gonna have to make some difficult tradeoffs. I’m not disposed—I don’t want to get ahead of the story.”
“I spoke to the president about this very subject late last evening,” Kudlow concluded. “So we’ll be looking at a number of different things. Let’s give it another week.”
