Top economic advisor Gary Cohn disowns Trump response to Charlottesville rally

Top economic advisor Gary Cohn disowns Trump response to Charlottesville rally

Later in the press briefing, Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan asked how a government shutdown over the border would affect the economy.

"The president's committed to making sure this gets done", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

Cohn is so far one of the few in the Trump White House to publicly condemn the president's remarks about the rally organized by white nationalist groups over the removal of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's statue from a downtown Charlottesville park. In those early, messy, months, Oval Office visitors had no trouble sliding mischievous documents onto the president's desk.

While President Donald Trump's incendiary tweets and unorthodox behavior dominates headlines, well-heeled conservative groups and lobbyists are trying to focus their energy elsewhere, spending significant resources to push through what could be the most important legislative goal of Trump's first year: Tax reform.

There's one outlier who could derail attempts to regulate President Donald Trump's media diet and his name is Donald Trump, Jr. The Category 2 storm is expected to intensify throughout the day, and Sanders may discuss President Trump's efforts to monitor the storm's progress and strategize with local officials.

Such shadow knifings won't happen so much during office hours; but late at night on the phone to Trump - that's another story.

Roger Stone, a longtime Trump friend and political adviser, made his point on the record: "The Trump brand and the Republican brand are two different things". She commented on how this had been a priority for the President both during his campaign, election, and now with his role as President.

Griffith also said, "We promised the American people, not just in the last campaign, we've promised the American people going back to the Reagan administration that we would secure our southern border". But now that a Republican is in the White House, the Koch's sprawling network is aiming to take advantage of the GOP's grip on Washington.

During an April 23 interview with ABC News' on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that he "can't imagine the Democrats would shut down the government over an objection to building a down payment on a wall that can end the lawlessness".

He then played the clip of CBS News reporter Major Garrett asking Sanders how it isn't a concession to threaten to shutdown the government if Congress doesn't fund something Trump claimed Mexico would pay for.
