National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn said Thursday he plans to remain with the Trump administration after tax reform passes.

Cohn's comments came during an interview on CBNC.

"Look, I am in an amazing position," he said. "The president has given me unbelievable task, unbelievable responsibility to help him drive his economic agenda.

"I believe in his economic agenda. I believe in what he's doing on deregulation. I believe what he's doing on taxes, and I believe what he's doing on infrastructure.

"When I look at myself, I have been — really a lucky American to end up where I am. I owe it to the country to work for the citizens of the country, work for the president, and try and help him drive his economic agenda.

Asked by CNBC's John Harwood if he was planning to leave the White House after tax reform was passed, Cohn simply said: "Nope."

"It's my plan to stay and work as long as I can help the president drive his economic agenda.," he said. "A year ago today, I wasn't thinking I'd be here. So, for me to tell you where I'm going to be four years from now, I have no idea."

Just last week, President Donald Trump nominated Jerome Powell to replace Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen, CNN noted. Cohn was believed to have been on the short list of those being considered for the job.
