Gary Cohn: 'I Have a Great Relationship With the President'

(CNBC)

National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn is insisting he and President Trump are getting along just fine.

"I have a great relationship with the president," Cohn said Friday on CNBC.

"We're working well together. We've spent enormous amount of time this week working on taxes.

"He and I are spending time working together on all the big economic issues that are going to drive economic growth and drive wages in this country. That's what he cares about, that's what I care about."

His comments came after The Washington Post reported Trump is "simmering with displeasure" over Cohn's criticism of his response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

During another interview on Fox Business, host Stuart Varney asked Cohn: "The gossip is that you're only staying in this administration to get tax cuts done, is that accurate?"

And Cohn replied: "Tax cuts are really important to me. I think it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We haven't done tax cuts in 31 years. So, to be part of an administration that gets something done that hasn't been done for 31 years, is enormously challenging…enormously interesting to me. So, yes, I'm very excited about being part of the team that is able to work on something that's that important."
