President Donald Trump will "depend" on Larry Kudlow to "sell this economic message" as his top adviser, despite their disagreements on tariffs, former Trump campaign adviser Stephen Moore told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

"It's the one issue where Donald Trump and Larry Kudlow have some disagreements," Moore, who now works at the Heritage Foundation, told "Newsmax Now" host John Bachman in an interview.

"They probably agree on about 95 percent of the issues, from regulation to immigration to taxes and so many others.

"They do have a little bit of a different view on this," Moore observed, "but it would be very good for Donald Trump to have somebody who is more of a free-market advocate and a free-trade advocate at the table.

"That doesn't mean Larry Kudlow's always going to win the debate, but at least his voice will be heard."

But University of Maryland professor Peter Morici countered tariffs were not a "for-or-against kind of issue."

"He talks about opening the market," the economist told Bachman of Trump. "He talks about better access.

"We do have trade imbalances with Europe and with China.

"I don't think that Mr. Kudlow would say we don't want to correct those trade imbalances," he added. "The question is how.

"The president is using the tariffs as a lever, as a mallet. But the issue is what does he want in return?

"You need to say what is it they need to do to open up," Morici explained. "Mr. Kudlow may help the president reframe the question so that it is seen in a more constructive light — and the industries that seem to need some relief get it."
