Gary Cohn at the World Economic Forum in Davos, January 2015

In a private meeting with lawmakers yesterday (April 5), Trump’s economic advisor Gary Cohn said he supported a policy that could radically reshape Wall Street.

You see, the former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) exec now supports a re-imposition of the Glass-Steagall Act – an idea that the U.S.’ two main political parties support — but that the country’s top banks loathe.

This is a change of heart for Cohn. In February, the investment banker voiced his disdain for bank regulation measures when he said it was time to “attack the red tape of Dodd-Frank” in a FOX Business interview. Dodd-Frank is a less onerous regulation than Glass-Steagall. Bank stocks soared as investors considered the prospect of billions of dollars flowing back into their pockets. In fact, Goldman Sachs saw a jump of 1.29%.
