TheStreet's founder and Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer said Larry Kudlow, who will become National Economic Council director, is pro-growth.

"[Kudlow] believes that the key to pro-growth is no tariffs, world commerce, globalism," Cramer said. "He is everything that Gary Cohn is except for he will be in the end a spokesperson for the President rather than internally disagreeing with the President and then externally hearing about it."
