“Fact check: false," Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) tweeted shortly after Trump’s top economic adviser, Gary Cohn, announced his resignation on Tuesday, reportedly over Trump’s proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Beyer's tweet included a link to a clip from a press conference earlier that same day, in which Trump dismissed reports that his administration was engulfed in chaos by saying his White House has “tremendous energy.”


“It is a great place to be working. Many, many people want every single job,” Trump told reporters alongside Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

“Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office, they all want a piece of that West Wing.”
