'Top White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, a Wall Street banker who 
became a key architect of the 2017 tax overhaul and a bulwark against 
protectionist forces within the Trump administration, is resigning, the 
White House said on Tuesday.'


'“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. I am grateful to the President for giving me this 
opportunity and wish him and the Administration great success in the 
future,” Cohn said in a statement issued by the White House.

Cohn’s resignation came after U.S. President Donald Trump said he would 
impose hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports in a move that would 
hit close allies Canada and Mexico. Trump’s pledge to impose tariffs had 
prompted speculation Cohn might leave the White House because of his 
opposition to the policy.

Cohn, a former president and chief operating officer of investment bank 
Goldman Sachs, was one of a number of Wall Street veterans tapped by 
Trump for senior jobs after the 2016 presidential election.'
