Former National Economic Council director Gary Cohn said that Bob Woodward’s White House memoir “does not accurately portray” his time working in the White House, but declined to single out specific episodes, according to a Tuesday Axios report. 

“I am proud of my service in the Trump Administration, and I continue to support the President and his economic agenda,” he added.

Cohn stars in one of the most memorable passages in Woodward’s book, “Fear,” when he reportedly snatched papers off President Donald Trump’s desk when the President wasn’t looking to prevent him from pulling out of NAFTA and a trade deal with South Korea.

Trump is reportedly livid at Cohn, who left the administration in March.
