President Trump’s top economic adviser, Gary Cohn, has announced he will resign, amid a dispute about Trump’s plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum. Cohn is the director of the National Economic Council. Before taking the position, he was the president of Goldman Sachs. He’s now part of an unprecedented number of people to quit Trump’s White House. But during a news conference with the Swedish prime minister Tuesday, Trump denied there’s chaos in the White House.

President Donald Trump: “Many, many people want every single job. You know, I read where 'Oh, gee, maybe people don't want to work for Trump,’ but, believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office. They want a piece of the West Wing.”
