Mnuchin Tries To Bill Taxpayers For Honeymoon

Multimillionaire Steve Mnuchin wanted the government to foot the bill for his ballin’ Euro-trip honeymoon. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join

“Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin confirmed the ABC News report that he requested a military aircraft for his European honeymoon last month, but said it wasn’t a question of luxury for him and his wife.
“Effectively it was a portable office so I could be available and ultimately, we withdrew the request,” Mnuchin said, speaking at a conference sponsored by Politico on Thursday. “I’ve never asked the government to pay for my personal travel.”
Mnuchin said his office was concerned that he needed to have constant access to secure information and communication as he also sits on the president’s National Security Council.
“This had nothing to do with convenience,” he said. “This was purely about national security.””*

    This Steven Mnuchin debacle is what occurs when you have our Corrupt-in-Chief Trump clearing the way for others in political office to exploit governmental perks on the taxpayer's dime. Shame on our president for making this practice seem perfectly acceptable.

    How about the fact that this man is the TREASURY SECRETARY?? This man's responsibility is to act as economic advisor to the president, counseling on both international and domestic issues around financial policy. Yet he wanted to use government funds for personal use? I acknowledge that he needs Secret Service protection, but outside of that on his honeymoon a man of $300 million can foot the bill for his own honeymoon.
