Gary Cohn, who formerly served as director of the National Economic Council during the Trump administration, was asked by ‘Face the Nation’ host Margaret Brennan whether he foresees a recession as 2020 starts to unfold.

“I know a lot of people have been talking about a recession. I do not see a recession on the horizon here. The U.S. economy is strong and continues to be very strong. The U.S. consumer is very strong.”

That’s some solidly optimistic language. And it isn’t as if Cohn, a Democrat, is in the tank for his former boss. While he has no intention not to vote for Trump this year, he still hasn’t decided.

Hopefully, he’s right about the growth continuing.
