One of Trump’s Top Jewish Advisers Considered Resigning After Trump’s Comments on Charlottesville

One of the President Donald Trump’s top Jewish advisers, Gary Cohn, considered resigning after Trump made comments about events in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, told the Financial Times in an interview that he felt “distress” in the weeks after Charlottesville, Virginia.

Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, told the Financial Times in an interview that he felt “distress” in the weeks after Charlottesville. According to at least one person with knowledge of Cohn’s discussion with concerned friends, Cohn came close to leaving his post in the Trump administration, The New York Times reported on Friday.

Both Cohn’s wife and his business friends reportedly urged him to resign. “Citizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the K.K.K.,” Cohn reportedly said.

“I believe this administration can and must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups and do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities,” Cohn told the Financial Times.

But after meeting privately with Trump, Cohn decided to stay on board. “I have not been bashful saying what I think,” Cohn said.

After the violent protests in Charlottesville, Trump drew criticism on both sides of the aisle for saying that both groups of protesters deserved some “blame.”

Cohn said that he would not let bigoted protesters push him out of his job: “As a Jewish American, I will not allow neo-Nazis ranting ‘Jews will not replace us’ to cause this Jew to leave his job.”
