Wall Street Banker Gary Cohn moving Trump Toward Moderate Policies


From Reuters: In a White House marked by infighting, top economic aide Gary Cohn, a Democrat and former Goldman Sachs banker, is muscling aside some of President Donald Trump’s hard-right advisers to push more moderate, business-friendly economic policies. Cohn, 56, did not work on Republican Trump’s campaign and only got to know him after the November election, but he has emerged as one of the administration’s most powerful players in an ascent that rankles conservatives. Trump refers to his director of the National Economic Council (NEC), as “one of my geniuses,” according to one source close to Cohn. More than half a dozen sources on Wall Street and in the White House said Cohn has gained the upper hand over Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, the former head of the right-wing website Breitbart News and a champion of protectionist trade opposed by moderate Republicans and many big companies.

Erdogan Declares Victory in Turkish Referendum: ‘Belittling’ Results ‘Will Be in Vain’

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan delivers a speech at the conservative Justice and Development Party (AKP) headquarters in Istanbul, on April 16, 2017, after the results of a nationwide referendum that will determine Turkey's future destiny. Erdogan on April 16, 2017 hailed Turkey for making a 'historic decision' as he claimed victory in the referendum on a new constitution expanding his powers. The 'Yes' campaign to give Turkish President expanded powers won with 51.3 percent of the vote a tightly-contested referendum although the 'No' camp had closed the gap, according to initial results. But Turkey's two main opposition parties said they would challenge the results. / AFP PHOTO / Bulent Kilic (Photo credit should read BULENT KILIC/AFP/Getty Images)
Shortly after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan claimed a decisive victory in Sunday’s highly controversial referendum vote to expand his powers, he issued a stern warning to opposition parties that their efforts to “belittle” the election results would “be in vain.”

Leading into a Sunday MSNBC “AM Joy” debate, host Joy Reid said that North Korea testing its missiles only raises more tension now that there is an “unpredictable” president in the White House, referring to President Donald Trump. “For 20 years now, a defiant North Korea has been testing its missiles, firing them into the heart of frenzied diplomatic tensions as the world holds its collective breath. The only difference now, there’s a new and unpredictable commander-in-chief in the White House,” Reid stated. Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Donald Trump Jr. ‘Fake News’ Shirt Part Deux: Twitter Beats Him Up

What could be funnier than Donald Trump Jr. wearing a bright green T-shirt emblazoned with the label “very fake news”? The response on Twitter, of course.

Trump Jr. apparently thought it was a stinging criticism of the mainstream media to pose poolside in the top over the weekend, and vowed to send similar shirts to his media “pals.”

That was all it took to get Twitter up and running. Alongside countless one-line zingers mocking Trump’s eldest son, some users took to Photoshop, placing Jr. and his “fake news” garb within actual historical events, such as the moon landing and George Washington crossing the Delaware.

Then there were the scores of tweets sending very different messages.

I’m going to have to buy 5-10,000 of these to pass around to our buddies in the #MSM. In the meantime I’ll model it for them . #yourewelcome pic.twitter.com/Hnn3Z5Pspm
