Cohn & Kushner

Stock futures predicted the stock market would go down today, which It did for a while, because of Gary Cohn's resignation from the Trump White House.  This indicated to me that the Jews who run the US financial industry were alarmed and disappointed that he was leaving.  However the market recovered towards the end of the day, perhaps indicating that they were not too alarmed, or that Jews are not as dominant on Wall Street as I think they are. 

In addition, most of the people that the New York Times reports as corrupting Jared Kushner in the White House are Jews, although the man from Citibank that he was talking to was not. 

I have also thought that Jewish financiers are upset because the new chair of the Fed, Powell, is not Jewish.  They wanted a second term for Janet Yellen.  The stock market went down on Powell's first day as chair and again when he testified before Congress, but it has bounced back.  A commentator on CNBC said that Powell would nit be as friendly to investors as Bernanke and Yellen were..  

I can't figure out Trump's relationship with the Jewish community.  They seem not to trust him, but he seems not concerned about any united Jewish influence.  He can take it or leave it.  He clearly is comfortable with Jews, since his daughter has converted to Judaism and his Jewish son-in-law is one of his closest advisers. 

So far, I have not heard any Jewish names in the running to replace Cohn, but we shall see.
