Mnuchin insists Trump adviser Gary Cohn ‘excited’ to work in White House despite writing resignation letter
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Friday that top White House economic advisor Gary Cohn was happy about his position in the Trump administration.
Cohn reportedly authored a resignation letter after President Donald Trump bungled his response to a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Mnuchin told reporters that, unlike his colleague, he had felt no pressure to resign over Trump’s comments.
“I can tell you I’m speaking to [Cohn] every day,” he added. “Gary’s committed to be here, and couldn’t be more excited about that.”
