Not surprised after the Trump meltdown and Trade wars 'thing'

Bbc




US President Donald Trump's top economic adviser Gary Cohn is resigning, the White House has said. It is the latest in a series of high-profile departures from President Trump's team. In a statement released by the White House, Mr Cohn said it had been "an honour to serve my country". Mr Cohn, a former president of the Goldman Sachs bank, helped Mr Trump push through his sweeping reforms on taxes. However, rumours continued to swirl that Mr Cohn and the president were not close.


Really not all surprised
Cohen was noy happy with Trump's idea
Only a matter of time

Cohn, who heads the National Economic Council, had reportedly threatened to leave after Trump’s incendiary comments following the fatal race riot in Charlottesville, Virginia.

But his decision to quit comes after Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, a move he and Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin have reportedly vehemently opposed.

Interesting.

A registered democrat, heavy donor to the republican party and former CEO and President of Goldman Sachs.

Seems the trash is taking itself out.

Perhaps. Or perhaps the guy realized he didn't have as much say as he thought.

Well considering the trash was placed there by the same guy who will be replacing it, how much do you want to bet it'll be more of the same?

Trump's top economic advisor is trash now?

Why would Trump have picked a GS guy if he weren't interested in doing Wall St's bidding.

Amazing that you'd say a guy is "the trash is taking itself out" as if somehow this isn't representative of everything about Trump.

Trump picked him, Trump wanted him, Trump even talked to him about being Chief of Staff, yet now he's trash.

You guys will cover absolutely anything, including putting Russia first. Whatever is needed to support Trump regardless.

And NO ONE wants to work in the WH. We know bc today Trump insisted many people do, compensating. They can't get anyone.

Registered Democrat. We hate um.
Heavy donor to the rinos. We hate um.
CEO of Goldman Sachs. Ouuuo we double hate um.

So the trash is taking it's self out. Good riddance.

Only leaves one major question.

If Trump was going to hire only the ''best people, and Trump was going to drain the swamp, then why did he hire this guy in the first place?

Because everything about Trump is a facade, it's all a game, fool and grift, rob the suckers of their money, lie your ass off, don't pay the bill, stay one step ahead of cops and bankruptcy. Nothing is real.

The presidency is no different. Just trying to make a buck, and stay out of jail. Hard when so many bucks are tied with Russia.

We shall have to wait and see who is the replacement.

If it is the same, then we can discuss it.

This on the heels of Trumps announcement of the tariffs on steel and aluminum, which I agree with. It's long overdue IMO.

Perhaps he thought he would play ball on both party lines. Turns out when a good move for the US doesn't impact profits as much, the guy bails.

Just my opinion.

whatever ... Cohen, understood that Trump is on a road to no where
best for him (Cohen) to pull out, and wash hands from a future failure
*not me not me not me*

The proof doesn't match your implication.

The rest of your post is irrelevant.
