Another Dem Senator Claims Gary Cohn Ended Trump Call: ‘Challenge to Transition Him Off’


Another Democratic senator weighed in today on CNN after a colleague said Gary Cohn pretended there was a bad connection to end a call with President Trump.

Senator Tom Carper claimed that this happened during a call about tax reform, and Senator Chris Coons said hours later, “I remember it a little differently.”

“It was a long call,” he told CNN’s Jim Sciutto, “it was clear that there was some eagerness in the room for us to resume our conversation. We heard a lot from the President. I do remember Senator Carper making that suggestion. I don’t think Gary Cohn abruptly hung up on the President, but it was a challenge to transition him off the call, and I think Gary Cohn handled it appropriately.”

The White House denied the earlier claim made by Carper today:
