Former head of Goldman Sachs gains power in Trump adminisration
Wall Street winning out over populism as Trump makes Gary Cohn former CEO of Goldman Sachs from 2006 to 2017 more powerful within the Trump administration.
|Cohn is a registered Democrat although he has donated money often to the Republican party. Cohn has been able to win over Trump to business-friendly economic policies at the expense of more populist, nationalist, policies of Steve Bannon. Unlike Bannon, Cohn did not even work on Trumps' campaign and has only come to know him since after he was elected last November. His rise within the Trump administration has angered some conservatives.|
