Trump says goodbye to 'globalist' economic adviser Gary Cohn

Trump says goodbye to 'globalist' economic adviser Gary Cohn

President Donald Trump shared an unfiltered description of outgoing Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn at his last cabinet meeting on Thursday.

Navarro, a 68-year-old former economics professor whose ideas were once considered well outside the mainstream, joined the Trump campaign in 2016 after one of his books on China happened to catch the eye of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner during an internet search.

"We're going to have sensible relations with our allies", he told CNBC, claiming that Mr Trump's policy was well "thought through".

The wall prototypes represent the signature promise of Trump's campaign: To build a "big, lovely wall" along the U.S. -Mexico border. The real target of the tariffs was China's massive expansion of its steel industry, which has hurt other producers around the world, including in the US.

"And I think way more often than not, he makes a very persuasive case". But Knight was uninterested, officials were quoted as saying.

"Frankly it's a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation, the protection of these terrible criminals", Trump said last month.

Cohn-Navarro discussions sometimes turned into shouting matches, occasionally in front of Trump. He later met with the National Rifle Association and appeared to soften his stance, but his comment "take the guns first, go through due process second" drew strong criticism.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan recommended that the president reconsider the tariff policy, while seeking solutions to potential ramifications.

Asked in a TV interview whether he'd conducted "guerrilla warfare", sneaking around the West Wing and trying to making an end-run around staffers, Mr. Navarro dismissed the narrative as a "cheap shot" spread by "all sorts of malicious" leakers.

President Trump has reiterated that he is not "backing down" on the tariffs.

Liddell's background running major companies and his behind-the-scenes efficiency at the White House has made him an attractive candidate, the official said.
