Wall Street JournalTrump Adviser Kudlow Blames Deficits on Spending, Not Tax Cuts

A top economic adviser to President Trump said Monday the U.S. is ready to engage in serious trade talks with China, in comments that also shrugged off massive U.S. government budget deficits as largely a function of too much government spending and not tax cuts. “The trade system around the world has been broken” and “China is the biggest culprit” for the current troubles, Lawrence Kudlow, head of the White House National Economic Council, told a gathering of the Economic Club of New York.
 

 A top economic adviser to President Donald Trump said on Monday he expects U.S. budget deficits of about 4 percent to 5 percent of the country's economic output for the next one to two years, adding that there would likely be an effort in 2019 to cut spending on entitlement programs. "We have to be tougher on spending," White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said in remarks to the Economic Club of New York, adding that government spending was the reason for the wider budget deficits, not the Republican-led tax cuts activated this year. Kudlow did not specify where future cuts would be made.
