Treasury Secretary Tells America to Take Trump Literally

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has issued a warning to Americans that they should take the president literally when he speaks.

According to Fox News:

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” this week, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the American public should take what President Trump says “very literally,” when he decides to speak out on a specific issue.

“I think most of the time you should take it very literally. I think sometimes he says things that are meant to be a joke,” Mnuchin told host Chris Wallace.

“Obviously the comment recently on ‘the chosen one,’ that was said tongue in cheek,” he continued. “That wasn’t meant to be a serious comment. I think most people know the president is serious about China and trade… He’s trying to correct something that’s gone on for the last 20 years.”

“The single biggest thing that everybody is talking about here in France is the U.S. economy. It’s the bright spot of the world,” he said.

Mnuchin also stated that the United States economy will be poised to be the catalyst for global growth.

The Fairtax (national sales tax on retail goods and services with a prebate) will do more good for our economy than anything else has ever done! This will eliminate one of the main problems of business-doing taxes.

I think President Trump often says things to make the media crazy! He is playing with them. As he should!
