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.

"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.
