The Mass-media is reporting the resignation of Gary Cohn, Chief Economic Adviser to President Trump, as being driven by disagreement over Tariffs on imported Steel and Aluminium.  That may be true, but it is ALSO true that Cohn has been a nasty Globalist influence in the Trump Administration, to the detriment of the "America First" agenda.

 

COAL

Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs banking executive, seemed to reopen the U.S. government’s war on coal in direct contravention of directions from President Donald Trump.

“Coal doesn’t even make that much sense anymore as a feedstock,” Cohn said in Europe on Air Force One, while speaking for the White House to the press, the New York Times’ Brad Plumer noted. [Emphasis added]

“Natural gas, which we have become an abundant producer, which we’re going to become a major exporter is, is such a cleaner fuel,” Cohn continued.

Those may have been Cohn's thoughts, but once the decision was made by Trump to support US coal, Cohn was obligated as a subordinate, to keep his thoughts to himself.  He didn't.  That undermines the President and tells the world there are divisions within the Administration which can be exploited.  Not good.

 

CHINA

Cohn and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin — the West Wing’s biggest proponents of free trade — tried to get Trump to water down his actions against China and on trade, in general, as Breitbart News reported. 

 

PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT

Cohn ferociously advocated the Trump administration stay in the Paris Climate Agreement, describing the president in May as “evolving” on the issue. 

“His views are evolving, which is exactly what they should be,” Cohn told reporters during a press briefing at the G7 summit.

Despite Cohn’s claim, Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement.  Yet because of Cohn's remarks, numerous people to this day believe Trump may be indecisive on the issue, and pressure continues being brought to bear upon Trump due to the undermining by Cohn.

 

TPP

Voters in states like Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin voted Trump on two key issues: Illegal Immigration and Trade.  The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would have been another disastrous trade deal for the US.  Trump knew this but Gary Cohn was on the other side of the issue, praising the “historic trade pact” in an op-ed that was published in a foreign publication; again, undermining the President and sowing division within the administration.

 

Immigration Friendly

Gary Cohn, a Democrat and former Goldman Sachs banker, muscled-aside some of President Donald Trump’s hard-right advisers to push what he called more moderate, business-friendly economic policies. 

Sources tell me that "business-friendly" meant cheap labor via immigration. Cohn wanted it.  Trump does not. 

Instead of seeing inbound immigration as a cancer on the Labor Pool which was driving down American wages, Cohn sided with businesses that benefited from the cheap labor, over Americans put out of work.  

 

TARIFFS

Cohn lead a last-ditch effort against President Donald Trump’s plan to put tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. 

Cohn is attempted to organize a “summit” of business leaders opposed to the tariffs, according to a person familiar with the matter. Executives at companies that use the metals to build their products, including automakers and other manufacturing companies, have expressed a desire to meet with Trump to head off the tariffs.

Trump, however, canceled that meeting and stood-by his call for tariffs. On Monday, the president said “we’re not backing down” on the plan to put a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum.

For folks like me, who are Pro-America-First in order to Make American Great Again, Cohn was a sort of "stone in our shoe."  That painful annoyance is now leaving. 

While Gary Cohn is a very intelligent, well-spoken and talented man, his policy views are not in-sync with what needs to be done with America to fix our problems.
