THIS IS HOW BAD THE TARIFF BATTLE GOT INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE: Trump Economic Adviser Cohn Told the Secret Service to Shoot Him After He Hit the President

From Bob Woodward's book,  Fear: Trump in the White House, we learn that when then top Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn brings Trump good news about job numbers, Trump teases him by saying, “It’s all because of my tariffs, they’re working.”

Trump had yet to impose any tariffs, but knew Cohn hated the idea.

“You’re a fucking asshole,” he tells Trump, half-joking, and hitting him gently on the arm. He turns to a secret service agent and says: “I just hit the president. If you want to shoot me, go ahead.”
