Good Morning, it’s Wednesday, 7 March 2018, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
Gary Cohn, the President’s Chief Economic Advisor, has resigned. Mr. Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive, has been seriously and stridently opposed to President Trump’s planned tariffs on steel and aluminum; he refused to go on “tour” and support the tariffs because–well, he’s the chief economic advisor and he knows that the tariffs will ultimately be very bad for the U.S. The stock market responded by dropping approximately 300 points when it opened this morning. Interesting economic fact: there are 80 times more people employed in the industries that use steel and aluminum than in the production of steel and aluminum in this country. So…do the math about how many will be hurt and how many will be helped by the tariff.
Remember Stormy Daniels, the porn star who said she had an affair with Trump before he became president, and collected hush money in the form of a $130,000 payment from Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen? Ms. Daniels is suing the President, saying the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) is invalid because Trump never signed it. Will she have to return the money?
