    Gary Cohn to Resign as Trump’s Top Economic Adviser

    By KATE KELLY, MAGGIE HABERMAN and PETER BAKERMARCH 6, 2018



    Gary D. Cohn, the president’s top economic adviser, last month at the White House. Officials insisted there was no single factor behind his departure. Credit Tom Brenner/The New York Times Gary D. Cohn, President Trump’s top economic adviser, plans to resign, becoming the latest in a series of high-profile departures from the Trump administration, White House officials said on Tuesday.


    The officials insisted there was no single factor behind the departure of Mr. Cohn, who heads the National Economic Council. But his decision to leave came after he seemed poised to lose an internal struggle amid a Wild West-style process over Mr. Trump’s plan to impose large tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.


    “Gary has been my chief economic adviser and did a superb job in driving our agenda, helping to deliver historic tax cuts and reforms and unleashing the American economy once again,” Mr. Trump said in a statement to The New York Times. “He is a rare talent, and I thank him for his dedicated service to the American people.”


    Mr. Cohn is expected to leave in the coming weeks. He will join a string of recent departures by senior White House officials, including Mr. Trump’s communications director and a powerful staff secretary.


    In a statement, Mr. Cohn said he had been pleased to work on “pro-growth economic policies to benefit the American people, in particular the passage of historic tax reform.” White House officials said that Mr. Cohn was leaving on cordial terms with the president and that they planned to continue discussing policy even after his departure.

    Here Are the Top Officials in the Trump White House Who Have Left

    Gary D. Cohn, President Trump’s top economic adviser, is the most recent high-profile member of the White House to announce plans to depart the West Wing.




    Yet the departure of Mr. Cohn, a free-trade oriented Democrat who fended off a number of nationalist-minded policies during his year in the Trump administration, could have a ripple effect on the president’s economic decisions and on the financial sector.



    Mr. Trump’s announcement last week that he would levy tariffs on aluminum and steel imports was the most immediate catalyst for Mr. Cohn’s departure, according to people familiar with his thinking. Mr. Cohn, a longtime proponent of free trade, believed the decision could jeopardize economic growth.

    His plan to leave also followed conversations Mr. Cohn held with the president in recent weeks about the possibility of replacing John F. Kelly as White House chief of staff, said people who were briefed on the matter. The president never formally offered Mr. Cohn the job, those people insisted, but Mr. Trump had discussions with him about whether he would be interested.


    Mr. Kelly said he would “miss having him as a partner in the White House, but he departs having made a real impact in the lives of the American people.”


    People close to Mr. Cohn said that he had planned to stay for roughly a year, and that he had accomplished a number of things he cared about. That included the $1.5 trillion tax cut that Republicans passed last year.

    The bigger problem is who are replacing these people? Anyone?

    No.


    The intelligence community has made no such assessment. A report by the CIA and the National Security Agency released in January found that the Kremlin hacked emails and disseminated propaganda in order “to help [then-candidate Donald Trump’s] election chances.”

    But the report’s authors explained that they “did not make an assessment of the impact that Russian activities had on the outcome of the 2016 election.”

    We are. Us poor slobs who get up every day and do the work we have to do, shop in the stores, pay our mortgages on time and otherwise keep that big old bicycle called the economy moving. We also police our streets, remove our trash, educate our kids and basically take care of it with local/state control over such matters, even if federal $ helps.

    We don't get to resign. So we keep on keeping on. If anything, this sham of an administration shows how useless our government can be, at least in terms of day to day.

    The long term effect of this banana republic remains to be seen. If they can't pay social security checks or medicaid bills, then we'll start to feel it. And of course, if that orange ball of useless cheese tanks the economy by spooking the stock market, we'll start losing our jobs. Or pisses off that midget mad man on the wrong side of MASH. But until then....

    No, that's not what I said. The intelligence community said the Russians interfered. My point is how can you come to that conclusion without assessing the impact. Of course the impact would be the election outcome, which for some reason, no one wants to say.
