President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, Gary Cohn, said on Thursday that he’s still a Democrat despite joining his Republican boss’s administration.

Cohn, who is director of the White House National Economic Council, has long been scorned by the far right in the Republican party as a “globalist” and a Democrat. He confirmed he’s still a Democrat in remarks to the Economic Club of Washington.
