Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin asked the White House about the possibility of using a government jet for his European honeymoon this summer but later withdrew the request.
A treasury spokesperson toldABC that Mnuchin lodged his honeymoon travel request out of a desire to uphold security standards.
The request is especially eyebrow raising after Mnuchin's now-wife, Louise Linton, posted a photo of her and her husband disembarking from a government jet after a trip to Kentucky in August. 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.

He said that he was in the state, which was in the path of totality for the eclipse, for meetings on tax reform, according to Politico. Ms. Linton created a firestorm when she mocked a woman who had criticized her on Instagram for promoting luxury brands while traveling to a poor part of the country. The commenter, OR resident Jennifer Miller, wrote an op-ed for CNN saying Linton was the one who is out of touch.
Mnuchin added that services firms, especially accounting companies, will no longer have the benefits of a pass-through rate, and will also have to pay a higher income tax rate.
