Trump’s top economist expects 3% growth

Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett tells FOX Business the extension of job growth and wages should spur the U.S. economy to grow by 3 percent in 2019.

Kevin Hassett, President Trump’s top economic adviser, said he is leaving the White House for all the right reasons.

“It just seems like it’s a good time to go back to the private sector,” Hassett told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Monday.

Hassett has spoken with President Trump about a potential replacement. However, plans remain secretive.

“I think there are a lot of very strong candidates — the CEA has a really big strong staff as it is and so I don’t think you need to worry that the economic advice is going to go,” he explained.

Trump announced Hassett’s pending departure on Twitter and vowed to name a replacement “soon.”
