On Bloomberg TV on Thursday, JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) Chief Executive Jamie Dimon called Cohn's departure from the White House "terrible".

Gutierrez told The Hill that recent departures from the Trump White House, the latest being economic adviser Gary Cohn, are going to leave the president all alone in Washington before too long.

But Mr. Moon's persistence suddenly appears to be paying off. Mr. Trump's head-spinning decision to accept an invitation to meet with Kim Jong-un, North Korea's leader, amounts to a remarkable diplomatic coup for Mr. Moon, who engineered the rapprochement in a whirlwind of diplomacy that began at the Winter Olympics last month and gained momentum faster than perhaps even he had anticipated. "He's been terrific. He may be a globalist, but I still like him", Trump says at a Cabinet meeting.

In the past, the term "globalist" was used by "alt-right" activists to attack Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is also Jewish.

He told CBS News that corruption in Saudi Arabia is much bigger than the clampdown by the crown prince addressed. But there were no trials, and the details remain a mystery.

The other cabinet members and aides in the room politely cheered the outgoing National Economic Council director as Trump left the door open for his return.

"We can think of no one who can fill this seat that will give Wall Street as much comfort as Cohn - particularly with the protectionists on the rise and tariffs top of the agenda". But, seriously, on behalf of all of us, I want to thank Gary. "I don't know if I can put him in the same position though", Trump said.

Cohn announced his resignation on Tuesday, after an unsuccessful bid to prevent the President's promised tariffs on foreign metals.

Cohn said he would resign shortly after he lost a fight over Trump's plans for hefty steel and aluminum import tariffs. "At the same time, we have some friends and some enemies where we have been tremendously taken advantage of over the years".
