National Economic Council Advisor Gary Cohn faked a bad connection and hung up on President Trump, according to Democratic Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware.
Cohn and other White House advisors were trying to sell the tax reform proposal to some Democrats when Trump called in from Asia. After about 15 minutes of listening to the president, Carper says he suggested to Cohn to tell Trump, “Mr. President, you’re brilliant, but we’re losing contact, and I think we’re going to lose you now, so goodbye.”
And that’s what he did.
