It appears that vampire squids are quite adaptable to living inside the swamp that Trump promised to be draining.

Following the appointment of former Goldman partner Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary, NBC News reports that Goldman Sachs President and COO Gary Cohn has been selected as National Economic Council Director.

Donald Trump has offered Goldman Sachs executive Gary Cohn a key economic post, which would add to the administration another veteran of the powerful firm he bashed during his campaign, sources close to Cohn told NBC News.

It is unclear if Cohn will accept the post, but he reportedly had discussions late last month about leaving Goldman.
