Trump on Gary Cohn: ‘He’s Seriously a Globalist, There’s No Question’ (VIDEO)
During Gary Cohn’s final White House meeting, President Donald Trump drew big laughs after he stated that while he “still likes him,” he’s “seriously a globalist.”
“There’s no question,” the president added.

Trump also said that he thinks Cohn will return to the administration at some point.
“He’s gonna go out and make another couple of hundred million, and you might come back,” Trump said. “We’ll be here for another seven years, and I have a feeling you may be back.”
Cohn previously described Antifa as “standing up for equality and freedom” in an interview with the Financial Times.
“Citizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK,” Cohn said Antifa after the tragic death in Charlottesville. “I believe this administration can and must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups and do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities.”
Cohn was formerly the president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs from 2006 to 2017. He served as Trump’s chief economic adviser since the beginning of the administration.
While many establishment Republicans were worried over the news of Cohn’s departure, none of the populists that helped bring Trump to victory shed any tears.
