Mnuchin: I had no interest in eclipse because 'I'm a New Yorker'

"It is imperative that he have access to secure communications, and it is our practice to consider a wide range of options to ensure he has these capabilities during his travel, including the possible use of military aircraft", a department spokesman said on Wednesday. In fact, the Treasury Secretary doesn't care for the wonders of space, or things that take place outside in general, because he is, as you may have heard, a coastal globalist who prefers lox and yelling loudly on his cell phone.

"People in Kentucky took this stuff very seriously", Mnuchin said. "Being a New Yorker and (living for a time in) California, I was like, the eclipse?" Acknowledging that Mr. Mnuchin has already said he would not step down, the Riverdale alumni urged him to speak out more clearly against hate groups.

"Let me just set the record straight". Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was primarily to discuss tax reform and also tour the nation's store of gold at Fort Knox. "Fort Knox is a symbol of the economic might of our country". His staff has since been able to meet this need by other means, he said.


First lady Melania Trump, Pres. Donald Trump, Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, Louise Linton, VP Mike Pence, and Second lady Karen Pence at the wedding of Mnuchin and Linton on June 24, 2017 at Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC. His wife, actress Louise Linton, posted a photo of herself with the plane in the background on Instagram tagging her designer clothing items. In her post, Linton included hashtags of various luxury designers she was wearing, which prompted criticism from an OR mother of three who wrote "glad we could pay for your little getaway".

Treasury officials defended the visit as official government travel worthy of a flight aboard an Air Force jet. (Linton later apologized for her reaction after making her account private, calling her response "condescending"). "Pretty sure the amount we sacrifice per year is a lot more than you'd be willing to sacrifice if the choice was yours".
