Treasury Secretary Mnuchin Confirmed

On Monday, the Senate confirmed Steven Mnuchin as the 77th Secretary of the Treasury by a 53-47 vote (one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin voted in favor). Later in the day, Vice President Pence swore Mnuchin into office during a ceremony presided over by President Trump in the Oval Office. Over the coming weeks, the Secretary will round out his team with advisors and await the Senate to approve top slots that require confirmation votes including his deputy secretary, undersecretaries for domestic finance and international affairs, as well as assistant secretaries of legislative affairs and tax policy, the latter being a key role in formulating and advancing the administration’s tax plan – the details of which are to be released in the coming weeks.
