[The stream has ended.]

White House chief economic advisor Gary Cohn spoke about policy Thursday as questions swirl about the Trump administration's tax reform plan.

Cohn appearing at the Institute of International Finance Washington Policy Summit, said the White House will come out with a "unified" tax plan and touted a combination of public and private funding to boost American infrastructure.

At the event earlier Thursday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Trump administration is close to bringing forward "major tax reform," days after he tempered expectations for how quickly it will pass.

The advisor to President Donald Trump recently said he did not know if tax reform could pass before the August goal the administration previously set, according to The Hill.

Cohn, the former No. 2 executive at Goldman Sachs, could give more details about possible provisions of the tax plan.
