Former White House Economic Adviser Gary Cohn offered President Trump enthusiastic praise before advising his former boss to reopen the government.

“Look a lot of his ideas are phenomenal,” he told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle from the economic summit in Davos, Switzerland. “A lot of things he’s doing are great and people don’t understand. He’s growing the economy, he’s creating jobs, he’s doing the right things — the government needs to be open, the government needs to be open, he has got to get the government open.”
