Mnuchin requested a government jet for his honeymoon

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin speaking at the 2017 Delivering Alpha conference in New York on Sept. 12 2017

The revelation that Mnuchin asked to use a military plane for his lavish European honeymoon came as the treasury secretary faces scrutiny over his use of a government plane during a trip to Kentucky last month.

After it became apparent that other methods of protected communication were available, Mnuchin decided not to use military aircraft, she said. Reporter: And after treasury officials say they raised the issue of how it would look for a man worth at least3 $00 million to travel at tax payerls expense on a personal trip, mnuchin found another way to get to Europe on his own dime.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Gary Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, have been working for months with Republican congressional leaders to craft a tax proposal.

"You don't need a giant rule book of government requirements to just say (to) yourself, 'This is common sense, it's wrong, '" Sen.

The White House said the six senators who will meet with Trump over dinner include Democrats Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp, along with Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch and fellow panel Republicans Patrick Toomey and John Thune.

The treasury said that Linton will reimburse the government for transportation costs when she travels with Mnuchin on official business.

"I've known him a long time, he is a very straight shooter", said Trump of Mnuchin while speaking aboard his Air Force One on his way back to Washington, D.C., after visiting impacted by Hurricane Irma in Florida. When she was called out on Instagram by angry taxpayers for the possible misuse of government spending, Linton went off, claiming her and her husband's contributions in taxes were far greater than any normal person. The reporters point out, though, that "aside from the President and Vice President, travel on military aircraft is typically reserved for cabinet members who deal directly with national security, such as the Secretaries of Defense and State". She responded condescendingly to a critic, where she had posted a photo of herself exiting a USA government plane, holding a handbag that sells for more than $10,000. "Do you think the U.S. Government paid for our honeymoon or personal travel? Lol".

"We are looking for a middle income tax cut".

"This was not about convenience", Mnuchin said.
