While maintaining tariffs were the wrong way to go with China for President Donald Trump, estranged former White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, a self-proclaimed Democrat, does not see someone in his party worth voting for.

“I’m leaving the door open, but at this point, I don’t have any intention not to vote for the president,” Cohn told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Cohn, who left the administration acrimoniously, was effusive in his praise of the U.S. economy under Trump and dismissive of the “fangled” economic plans he hears coming from all Democratic presidential primary candidates, including Mike Bloomberg, who he serves on a economic advisory board for.

“What I do know is the economy is really strong, and the Democrats haven’t really come up with an idea of how to help the economy get even stronger,” Cohn told host Margaret Brennan. “So it’s probably easier to talk about corporate greed, and talk about Wall Street, and talk about technology companies because they don’t really have an answer for an economy that’s growing 2.5% with 3.5% unemployment and 3% wage growth.

“I haven’t heard their answer on that, except say ‘let’s tax it to death.'” full story
