A newly fraying relationship between U.S. President Donald Trump and top White House economic adviser Gary Cohn has raised questions about how long Cohn will stay in his job, according to two people with close ties to the White House.

Several sources said Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, had long planned to stay in his post for at least a year. But one source said that concern had grown among Cohn’s allies over the past 24 hours that he might be pressured to leave the administration.

The recent concerns stem from a report in the Wall Street Journal – confirmed by other news media, including Reuters – that Cohn was unlikely to be nominated by Trump as a potential successor to Fed Chair Janet Yellen.

White House downplays Tillerson, Cohn comments

  White House downplays Tillerson, Cohn comments The White House late Tuesday downplayed recent comments made by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the director of the National Economic Council, Gary Cohn, about President Trump's response to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about Tillerson's response to a question on Sunday about the president's values in response to the violence in Charlottesville. The secretary of State said at the time that Trump "speaks for himself.""I think the president certainly shares the values of Americans," Sanders told reporters aboard Air Force One.

Trump had mentioned Cohn in July for the job. Cohn resigned as president of Goldman Sachs to join the new administration,

“The calculus has shifted for Gary. He's gone essentially from untouchable to possibly being bounced out,” the source said. “The message is clear that suddenly Cohn's job in the White House has real downside risk.”

Cohn crossed Trump last month when he criticized the president in a Financial Times interview for his response to the violence at a rally organized by white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which one woman died.

One source close to the White House said Trump wanted to fire Cohn. "Hates him. But that could be ephemeral," the source said.

Cohn told the newspaper the administration "must do better" in condemning neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

Trump to cut pay raises for government workers

  Trump to cut pay raises for government workers President Trump sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Thursday announcing his intention to cut pay raises for civilian government workers. In the letter, Trump cited his authority in times of "national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare" to make adjustments to the 2018 pay schedule for federal employees.

The Jewish-American banker gave the interview after his wife and daughters pushed him to speak out, if not quit, after Trump blamed "both sides" for the violence.

Trump said there were "very fine people" among the white supremacist groups, something that disgusted Cohn and those close to him, people who know him said.

While the interview was intended to signal that Cohn had no plans to leave the White House and planned to push ahead with his signature project, tax reform, sources said the comments upset Trump.

Trump has gone hot and cold on other advisers, some of whom have stayed and some of whom have left the administration.

People who know Cohn say that when he does leave the White House, he wants it to be on his own terms.

A White House official said Cohn was focused on his job, especially tax reform.

“Gary is focused on his responsibilities as the Director of the National Economic Council, including a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to deliver meaningful tax reform that creates jobs and grows the economy,” the official said.

Cohn said in an interview with CNBC last week that he had a "great relationship" with Trump and that the two were working well together. (Additional reporting by Olivia Oran in New York; Editing by Caren Bohan and Peter Cooney)
