White House adviser Gary Cohn’s adult daughter Chloe Cohn deleted her Twitter account after a sustained period of tweeting negatively about President Donald Trump and his administration.
Gary Cohn, the longtime Goldman Sachs executive and chief White House economic adviser, is seen by Trump loyalists as an establishment force in the West Wing pulling the president in anti-populist directions against the will of the voters who rallied for Trump on the campaign trail. Cohn’s increasing influence in the White House has sparked rumors that he will soon take over as White House chief of staff, cementing the so-called “centrist” shift that the press believes Trump is undertaking. Pro-Trump Deplorables around the country are worried, and with good reason. Cohn’s daughter’s deleted tweets further highlight the liberal establishmentarian thinking endemic to Cohn’s social class.
Chloe Cohn is currently listed on the Huffington Post masthead as an associate editor. The 2013 Brown University graduate joined the anti-Trump publication in March 2016 after a postgrad stint as a “Merchandise Assistant” at Barneys New York. She made it clear during the campaign that she deeply loathed Trump. Her tweets implied that Trump was a con artist and that his vision of America was similar to the Soviet Union, and railed against his “authoritarian” and “dystopian” Republican convention speech. Meanwhile, she steadfastly opposed Trump’s immigration positions, said that a taco truck on every corner would be the “solution” and not the problem for America, and mocked Trump for being disliked by Hispanics. Chloe Cohn also sent out pro-Hillary Clinton tweets, called Clinton a “style icon” and re-tweeted Clinton when she told Trump to “delete your account.”

Cohn’s tweets during the 2016 campaign, before Trump became president, were even nastier:
Chloe Cohn did not return a request for comment on social media as of press time. An inquiry sent to The Huffington Post was not immediately returned.
Backlash to her father Gary Cohn’s rising star in the White House has been intense, even though Cohn is not a well-known figure to the national public. Cohn’s longtime former employment at Goldman Sachs is especially worrying to the Deplorables.
Trump supporters at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland famously booed Ted Cruz off the stage, and jeered Cruz and his wife Heidi with taunts of “Goldman Sachs” as they were being escorted out of the arena. Heidi Cruz works for Goldman Sachs, which Trump supporters view as a globalist institution hellbent on undermining American sovereignty and wages for its own worldwide financial interests.
