Trump Administration Pushes Back On Reports Cohn Is Mulling White House Exit

Submitted by • March 6, 2018

The Trump administration is downplaying reports that White House chief economist Gary Cohn is planning to leave the West Wing because of frustrations over the implementation of steel and aluminum tariffs.

After President Donald Trump announced the US would impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports last week, one person familiar with Cohn's thinking described him as furious at the trade moves, which -- aside from the economic consequences -- left him feeling like he's lost influence with the President.
