President Donald Trump praises departing economic adviser Gary Cohn (L) during a Cabinet meeting at the White House, Washington, March 8, 2018.

Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs president, resigned Tuesday after losing his fight against stiff tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Before Cohn’s resignation, some reports speculated that he could become White House chief of staff if Trump decides to fire John Kelly.

Earlier, two titans of Wall Street lamented Cohn’s departure.

J.P. Morgan chief Jamie Dimon said Thursday the news of Cohn leaving the administration is “unfortunate” and “terrible.”

In similar fashion, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein expressed his concern Tuesday.

“Gary Cohn deserves credit for serving his country in a first-class way. I’m sure I join many others who are disappointed to see him leave,” Blankfein said in a Tweet.
