Trump says goodbye to 'globalist' economic adviser Gary Cohn

Asian markets slip after Donald Trump adviser's departure heightens trade war fears

President Donald Trump said Thursday that White House chief economic advisor Gary Cohn 's departure from his administration may be temporary.

As markets fell on news that Wall Street favorite Gary Cohn, Trump's top economic adviser, had resigned from the White House in protest at Trump's trade decision and global partners vowed retaliation, Mr Ross tried to calm fears of a trade war.

There was a major announcement in Washington DC in the past few hours as President Trump has confirmed he will meet North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un. "He is a rare talent, and I thank him for his dedicated service to the American people", Trump said. There's no question. In his own way, but you know what, he's a nationalist.

That usage of globalist has overlapped on the "alt-right" with anti-Semitic connotations. That reportedly triggered Cohn's departure from the administration. "He's not quite as strong on those tariffs".

"Gary's shoes are going to be large to fill and I have no idea who would want to take on that role".

The company offering the bus service was First Class Tours, a Houston-based company that runs 58 buses and employs 94 drivers. Baldwin County authorities tell FOX10 News the bus fell off westbound I-10 into a ravine at Cowpen Creek around 5:30 a.m.

The New York Times said on Saturday that the White House began planning on Friday a high-level diplomatic encounter with the North.

Cohn announced his resignation on Tuesday, after an unsuccessful bid to prevent the President's promised tariffs on foreign metals.

Trump, in a move last week that surprised many of his top advisers, called for stiff tariffs on the import of steel and aluminum.

He indicated that the order could be tailored to exclude certain countries and give him the power to raise and lower the percentages on individual countries at will.

Levitt said that if Democrats are able to win a majority in at least one branch of Congress, it could reduce uncertainty by checking Trump's attempts to implement protectionist policies.
