The White House hasn't done any succession planning, but here's who we're hearing as possible replacements for Gary Cohn as President Trump's chief economic adviser.

Four rumored contenders for the position are: Kevin Warsh, former Fed governor and economic official for President George W. Bush; Shahira Knight, Deputy Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, Cohn's top tax official; Peter Navarro, White House trade adviser, who argued for tariffs; and Larry Kudlow, CNBC senior contributor and conservative commentator, who shares Cohn's views on trade.

P.S. Trump at a press conference yesterday, before the Cohn announcement, on finding new talent:

  • "Many, many people want every single job. You know, I read where, 'Oh, gee, maybe people don’t want to work for Trump.' And believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office; they want a piece of the West Wing. And not only in terms of it looks great on their résumé; it’s just a great place to work."
  • "So many people want to come in. I have a choice of anybody. I could take any position in the White House, and I’ll have a choice of the 10 top people having to do with that position. Everybody wants to be there."

The silver linings of online school

Online learning can be frustrating for students, teachers and parents, but some methods are working.

The big picture: Just as companies are using this era of telework to try new things, some principals, teachers and education startups are treating remote learning as a period of experimentation, too.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton both are slated to speak on the Wednesday of the Democratic convention — Aug. 19 — four sources familiar with the planning told Axios.

Why it matters: That's the same night Joe Biden's running mate (to be revealed next week) will address the nation. Clinton and Warren represent two of the most influential wise-women of Democratic politics with the potential to turn out millions of establishment and progressive voters in November.
