The Exodus Continues: Gary Cohn to Resign as Trump's Economic Adviser, Because Who Can Advise Donald Trump?

Another one down. Gary Cohn has apparently had a sudden attack of principles and decided he can't work for the Trump-thing any more after clashing over Donnie's reckless and stupid tariff plans.

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.

Trump, earlier this morning...

The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House. Wrong! People will always come & go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no Chaos, only great Energy!
