Trump mentioned the possibility of tariffs on the campaign trail. Peter Navarro, a trade adviser to Trump who promoted the tariffs, has also been touted as a candidate for the top economic job, though he has said he is not in the running.

Cohn announced his resignation earlier this week after publicly disagreeing with Trump's decision to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

Cohn announced his departure as it became clear Trump would move ahead with the tariffs. "When he says 'why do we have had people from shithole countries, Africa and Haiti coming here to United States of America why can't they be from Norway?' let me see, some people are black other people are white - that's racist", Gutiérrez told the paper.

The trip will be Trump's first to California since taking office. They could also try to pass a veto-proof bill to block the tariffs from going into effect, although getting two-thirds support in both the House and Senate could prove very hard.

President Trump will visit San Diego next week to get a first-hand look at the border wall prototypes. He waited as tariff decision deadlines set by Ross ticked closer, and the White House turned its attention back to trade after deciding to table the divisive issue while it worked on health care and taxes.
