Cohn, Goldman's former president, announced his resignation this week after an unsuccessful effort to block Trump from imposing sweeping new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. The other is Lawrence Kudlow, an economic analyst at CNBC who has criticized those same tariffs.
"Although confined to a small office across the street from the White House without even an administrative assistant, he had found a new way to get his message to the president - through television", the Journalreports. "He is a rare talent, and I thank him for his dedicated service to the American people", Trump said.
Britain, meanwhile, said it would "work with European Union partners to consider the scope for exemptions outlined today", saying "tariffs are not the right way" to tackle the problem of global over-capacity in steel.

While aides said Trump hopes to sign the required paperwork by the end of this week, aides continue to suggest that there may be changes of exemptions, a sign of possible flexibility within the nationalist agenda.
Trump linked the exemptions for Canada and Mexico to progress on renegotiating NAFTA to favour the United States.
Securing a greater balance in trade with China will also be hard if Trump resorts to punitive measures. "There's no question. You know what?"
Air Canada customers in foreign airports have also been raising concerns about long lines and check-in delays. Air Canada said on its website it's working to resolve the issue and apologizes for the inconvenience.
It cannot get any better. "Steel is steel", Trump said. "A lot of steel mills are now opening up because of what I did", he said. With tensions at a peak, the European Union had sought to keep low expectations for any breakthrough on Saturday. "It's clear.
