The White House has stated that President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser Gary Cohn is resigning.

It is the latest in a series of high-profile departures from Trump’s team.

There has been speculation that Gary Cohn, a supporter of free trade, was angered by Trump’s plans to impose tariffs on aluminium and steel imports.

In a statement released by the White House, Gary Cohn stated that it had been “an honour to serve my country”.

The 57-year-old former president of the Goldman Sachs bank had helped Trump push through his sweeping tax reforms late last year (2017).
