Ahead of Steve Mnuchin’s nomination hearing before the Finance Committee tomorrow, American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:
“A predatory Wall Street banker, Steve Mnuchin takes a back seat to no one — with the possible exception of Donald Trump — when it comes to profiteering off the misery of the American people. When the recession hit, Mnuchin was there with his ‘foreclosure machine’ of a bank, putting millions of hardworking families out of their homes and making tens of millions of dollars for himself.
“In Steve Mnuchin, Donald Trump has found another Goldman Sachs executive to stack his #RiggedCabinet — someone who will roll back regulations and slash taxes for millionaires and billionaires, like himself, all while endangering the working families that bailed out Wall Street during the recession.
“Simply put, Mnuchin is a master of misfortune who stands ready to profit when the American people lose, and now Donald Trump wants to put him in charge of our economy.”
