Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn resigns

Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, Gary Cohn, has resigned, in a major blow to free-trade proponents inside the White House after losing a battle over tariffs.

In a statement, the White House said Mr Cohn, the former number-two at Goldman Sachs, would be leaving in the coming weeks.

“It has been an honor to serve my country and enact pro-growth economic policies to benefit the American people, in particular the passage of historic tax reform,” Mr Cohn said. “I am grateful to the President for giving me this opportunity and wish him and the Administration great success in the future.”
