Last quote by Steven Mnuchin

The Venezuelan people are suffering from a collapsing economy brought about by their government's mismanagement and corruption. Members of the country's Supreme Court of Justice have exacerbated the situation by consistently interfering with the legislative branch's authority. By imposing these targeted sanctions, the United States is supporting the Venezuelan people in their efforts to protect and advance democratic governance in their country.feedback

Steven Mnuchin quotes

This is a reminder to all of us of the importance and focus on cyber security. We had this on the agenda today, we were speaking about it, I think people felt so strongly about it that we agreed to keep it on the agenda for the next few sessions.feedback

We do not want to be protectionist but we reserve our right to be protectionist to the extent that we believe trade is not free and fair. Our approach is for more balanced trade, and people have heard that. And as I say, people are more comfortable today, now that they've had the opportunity to spend time with me and listen to the president and hear our economic message.feedback

This is a big priority for the president ... We're going to try to get this done as quickly as we can.feedback

We have over 100 people in the tax department, and we've been running numbers, you know, for several months.feedback

There's really three parts that will drive that. First, is tax reform. This will be the most sweeping tax reform we've ever had. The second part is regulatory relief. We can have sound regulations. Make sure we have proper regulations.feedback

And the third part is fair trade, renegotiating the trade deals. We think those three things together will create sustained economic growth of 3 percent or higher.feedback

We've talked about putting infrastructure and tax together, I think we're probably not going to do that.feedback

The purposes of the orders are to make clear what the president's and the administration's priorities are and to signify the importance of these issues to the American people.feedback

We are taking all deductions out other than mortgage interest and charitable donations.feedback

We just don't think it works in the current form.feedback

Let me be clear: This is for small businesses, not a loophole for rich people to lower their tax bill.feedback

We've been working on this plan for a considerable amount of time.feedback

The president has no intention. The president has released plenty of information and I think has given more financial disclosure than anybody else. I think the American population has plenty of information.feedback

We don't think it works in its current form.feedback

Our objective is to make US businesses the most competitive in the world. Right now we have a 35 per cent corporate rate on worldwide income and deferral. It is perhaps the most complicated and uncompetitive business rate in the world.feedback

It will be a very competitive rate that will bring back trillions of dollars.feedback

It's not the federal government's job to be subsidizing the states.feedback

This is going to be the biggest tax cut and the largest tax reform in the history of our country.feedback

What this is not going to be is a loophole to let rich people who should be paying higher percents pay 15 percent. The goal is to make it permanent but, if we have them for 10 years, that's better than nothing. We like hard challenges–that's why the president's here.feedback

What we think is important is small business, and we are committed that small business, owner operators will have the benefit of the business rate. What this is not going to be is a loophole to let rich people who should be paying higher rates pay 15 percent.feedback

Our objective is simplifying personal taxes.feedback

We're committed to working, getting this thing done, getting everyone in the room, and getting this thing passed.feedback

What this is about is creating job and economic growth.feedback

The deficit is a problem and the president is concerned about that.feedback

We want to move as fast as we can. This bill is about creating economic growth and jobs.feedback

One of the things I do in my job is oversee the IRS, Internal Revenue Service, which reports to the treasury. The tax code is just way, way, way too complicated. And we want to create a system where the average American can do their taxes on a postcard not a major book.feedback

You could have as high as a $2 trillion difference in revenues depending on what you think is going to be the growth function. The plan will pay for itself with growth.feedback

Under dynamic scoring, this will pay for itself. Under static scoring, there will be short-term issues.feedback

The tax reform will pay for itself with economic growth.feedback

We take Syria's disregard for innocent human life very seriously, and will relentlessly pursue and shut down the financial networks of all individuals involved with the production of chemical weapons used to commit these atrocities. The United States is sending a strong message with this action that we will hold the entire Assad regime accountable for these blatant human rights violations in order to deter the spread of these types of barbaric chemical weapons.feedback

These sweeping sanctions target the scientific support center for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad's horrific chemical weapons attack on innocent civilian men, women, and children.feedback

The plan will pay for itself with growth.feedback

I think in many areas there has been too much regulation that has really hurt our business. The President believes in reciprocal trade deals, and reciprocal free trade. What's not free and fair is if our market is open but other people either have high tariffs or have high import barriers and non-tariff barriers and that creates one-sided issues. The tax code is just way, way too complicated, and we want to create a system where the average American does their taxes on a [big] postcard not a major book.feedback

Part of my job is ensuring that we have proper regulation, but ensuring that we don't have conflicting regulation. I think after the financial crisis there was need for new regulation, but we've just gone too far in the other extreme.feedback

We're looking for reforms that will pay for themselves with growth. Under dynamic scoring, this will pay for itself, under static scoring, there'll be short term issues. The tax code is way, way, way too complicated. We want to create a system where the average American can file a tax code on a big postcard.feedback

In our view, excessively large trade surpluses, like excessively large trade deficits, are not conducive to supporting a free and fair trading system.feedback

The United States is probably the most open trading market there is. We want to create a system where the average American can do their taxes on a postcard, not a book. Maybe a big postcard, but you can still stick it in the mail.feedback

We look to the IMF to highlight where surplus countries can more forcefully contribute to support symmetric adjustment in pursuit of a fairer global system.feedback

In consultation with President Donald J. Trump, the Treasury Department will not be issuing waivers to U.S. companies, including Exxon, authorizing drilling prohibited by current Russian sanctions.feedback

Let me make it absolutely clear: President Trump is absolutely committed to make sure that taxpayers are not at risk for government bailouts of entities that are too big to fail.feedback

The president wants to get health care done and he wants to get tax done. Hopefully we're going to get both done, but we're going to get tax done.feedback

This administration is willing to reach out and get ideas from the outside.feedback

This has to do with the complexity of tax regulations. The president wants to make clear to the American people that we are going to fix the tax code.feedback

To manipulate a currency you have to be doing it to disadvantage the United States. To the extent that you manipulate a currency that advantages the United States that is not currency manipulation. Absolutely not. Absolutely not. We think this is primarily a European issue, although it is something we are monitoring because it is important to the world economy and world financial markets. A full separation would clearly create very big issues for liquidity in the financial markets.feedback

I don't expect this just to be repeat of previous issues.feedback

As the world's currency, the primary reserve currency, I think that over long periods of time the strength of the dollar is a good thing. It's a function of the confidence and the strength of the US economy.feedback

The president was making a factual comment about the strength of the dollar in the short term . . . There's a big difference between talk and action. Economic growth creates lots of revenues. When you calculate whether it is deficit-neutral or not, there are a bunch of different calculations and a bunch of models. I am just pointing out the magnitude of what economic growth does. This is an important part of what we are doing. They are in the process of being cleared to roll out. These sanctions programmes are extremely important. It is one of the most important parts of my job.feedback

An essential component of this administration's strategy is to ensure that American workers and companies face a level playing field when competing internationally.feedback

When our trading partners engage in currency manipulation, they impose significant, and often long-lasting hardship on American workers and businesses. Expanding trade in a way that is freer and fairer for all Americans requires that other economies avoid unfair currency practices, and we will continue to monitor this carefully.feedback

It's very, very hard to compete when you have a strong dollar and other countries are devaluing their currency.feedback

We focused on the desire to have very specific action items both in the short term for the next time we get together, as well as what the goals are over the year.feedback

We expect that those (sanctions) will continue to have an important effect on preventing people from doing business with them. These sanctions are very important and we will use them the maximum effect.feedback

We have a process within Treasury where we go through and look at currency manipulation across the board. We'll go through that process. We'll do that as we have in the past. We're not making any judgments until we continue that process.feedback

They are going to, along with me, put on a group of 20 people, 20 to 25 people on a commission. We're going to run projects through them. And they will have great expertise in that room. We'll have it from both coasts, and right down the middle. We're going to have representatives from various parts of the country that are all are very, very successful in terms of infrastructure.feedback

Today's sanctions are aimed at disrupting the networks and methods that the Government of North Korea employs to fund its unlawful nuclear, ballistic missile, and proliferation programs. I urge our partners and allies to take similar measures to cut off its funding.feedback

But you should all send your kids to Lego Batman.feedback

We've spent the money, so the concept of the debt limit is somewhat of a ridiculous concept. I think everybody understands, whether you're a Republican or a Democrat, we need to raise the debt limit, and that's something we're going to do. And that the full faith and credit of the United State is the most important thing.feedback

Health care is a very, very complicated issue. [Tax reform's] a lot simpler.feedback

I think that is so far in the future – in terms of artificial intelligence taking over American jobs – I think we're, like, so far away from that that. Not even on my radar screen.feedback

I think that is so far in the future – in terms of artificial intelligence taking over American jobs – I think we're, like, so far away from that [50 to 100 years], that it is not even on my radar screen.feedback

To the extent that we add resources, we can collect more money.feedback

We're able to take the tax code and redesign things and I think there is very, very strong support.feedback

Health care is a very complicated issue. In a way, tax reform is a lot simpler. We are not cutting this up and doing little pieces at a time. The consequence is that the market could go up significantly.feedback

Health care and tax reform are two very different things. Health care is a very, very complicated issue. In a way, [tax changes are] a lot simpler. It really is. We're working towards that as a goal. Don't hold me to it at the penny, but that is the direction we're heading, absolutely. We want to get [tax rates] a lot lower than we are now. We've been working the last two months on tax reform. This is something we are designing from scratch and running through a lot of scenarios. We would not have been ready…but now we are.feedback

As long as we can renegotiate deals that are good for us, we won't be protectionist. Otherwise, we will. Everybody understands that the debt ceiling will be raised.feedback

We're in an environment where there's very attractive investment opportunities in the U.S., and I think that's reflective of the administration's goals and what the market thinks of it.feedback

This is my first G20, so what was in the past communiqué is not necessarily relevant from my standpoint. I understand what the president's desire is and his policies, and I negotiated them from here. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. We believe in free trade, we are in one of the largest markets in the world, we are one of the largest trading partners in the world, trade has been good for us, it has been good for other people. Having said that, we want to re-examine certain agreements.feedback

I understand what the president's desire is and his policies and I negotiated them from here, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. We are working to strengthen the contribution of trade to our economies. My primary focus is on economic growth in the United States. I think that economic growth in the United States is good for us and good for the other major economies in the world.feedback

We are going to look to our counterparts to continue to trade, but to look to have more balanced trade. That means over time reducing our trade deficits. I think we can do that in a way that's good for the American worker, that's good for our companies, and that's good for our counterparties.feedback

Balanced trade has to be what's good for us and what's good for other people. It has to be a win-win situation.feedback

It is not our desire to get into trade wars. It is our desire to deal with where there is imbalance in certain trading relationships, that we have a means to address that. And that's something that is important. If you look at our economic policies again, it makes sense for us to readdress certain things.feedback

Our objective is getting more balanced trade agreements.feedback

It is not our desire to get into trade wars. The president does believe in free trade but he wants free and fair trade.feedback

Any reductions we have in upper-income taxes would be offset by less deductions, so there would be no absolute tax cut for the upper class.feedback

As I said in my confirmation hearing, honoring the full faith and credit of our outstanding debt is a critical commitment. I encourage Congress to raise the debt limit at the first opportunity so we can proceed with our joint priorities.feedback

As I said in my confirmation hearing, honoring the full faith and credit of our outstanding debt is a critical commitment. I encourage Congress to raise the debt limit at the first opportunity so that we can proceed with our joint priorities.feedback

As I said in my confirmation hearing, honoring the full faith and credit of our outstanding debt is a critical commitment. I encouraged Congress to raise the debt limit at the first opportunity so that we can proceed with our joint priorities.feedback

To the extent we think the Export-Import Bank can be competitive in helping small and medium-sized businesses, that's something that is important.feedback

Let me first clarify, we are not taking away the charitable deduction and we are leaving the mortgage interest deduction as is. We think those are both very, very important. But what we are going to do is we are looking at other things where the reduction in deductions will offset the rate.feedback

We're reaching out to business, not just big business but small- and medium-sized businesses also, and we're listening to what people have to say.feedback

This is something we are studying very carefully. There's certain aspects that the president likes about the concept of a border adjusted tax; there are certain aspects that he's very concerned about.feedback

We have a process within Treasury where we go through and look at currency manipulation across the board. And we'll go through that process. We'll do that as we have in the past, and we're not making any judgments until we continue that process.feedback

We are not touching those now. So don't expect to see that as part of this budget, OK. We are very focused on other aspects and that's what's very important to us. And that's the president's priority.feedback

I certainly support a form of tax on the border.feedback

The administration is listening to an array of businesses that are concerned about the impact of the tax on their profits. We understand the concerns, we understand where people are, and we're going to have a plan that addresses these concerns.feedback

I think there is a win-win result for us and Mexico on this. We've got to do things that are good for us and good for them.feedback

We think we're going to create significant amounts of growth and that's going to create jobs, create tax revenues. That's going to stimulate the economy.feedback

My guess is that our growth assumptions will be higher than what they use to score the plan.feedback

I think it's going to take time to get there. By the time we pass tax reform, you see the impact on the economy, you see the impact of regulation, it's definitely going to take into next year to see an engine of growth.feedback

We think there are some concerns about it.feedback

As I've said before, we're primarily focused on a middle-income tax cut and simplification for business. What we are focused [on] is that on the high end, if there are tax cuts, that they are offset with [a] reduction of deductions and other things. So it's something we're going to carefully look at. We haven't finalized the plan, but our objective and what I said before still stands. You know, kind of the devil is in the details when we run the numbers.feedback

This is a mark-to-market business, and you see what the market thinks.feedback

My kids and others have encouraged me to have a new signature, so I've been practicing it so it'll be nice and neat on the money.feedback

I think it's something we should seriously look at. I've already begun to talk to the staff about looking at that. We'll reach out to the market, investors, different people, but I think it's something that is a very serious issue of whether we should explore whether we can raise 50- or 100-year money at a very slight premium. That's something that makes sense for Treasury to look at.feedback

We're not ready to make any formal announcement on whether we're going to have a 50-year or 100-year.feedback

There's trillions of dollars offshore that will come back, and this will create jobs (and) this will create investment and we need to make sure our U.S. businesses are competitive.feedback

We are committed to pass tax reform. It's going to be focused on middle income tax cuts, simplification and making (the U.S.) business tax competitive with the rest of the world, which has been a big problem. We have underperformed where we need to be. We believe we can be competitive and get back to sustainable growth of 3 percent or more. We think there are some very interesting aspects of it. We think there are some concerns about it. We're working behind the scenes very carefully. We're running a lot of numbers and we're taking into account a lot of issues.feedback

We want to get this done by the August recess. We've been working closely with the leadership in the House and the Senate and we're looking at a combined plan.feedback

We're looking at significant economic changes.feedback

I did not use a Cayman Island entity in any way to avoid taxes for myself. There was no benefit to me.feedback

A bright line between commercial and investment banking, although less complicated, may inhibit the necessary lending and capital markets activities to support a robust economy.feedback

As Chair of FSOC I would plan to address the issue of the definition of the Volcker Rule to make sure that banks can provide the necessary liquidity for customer markets and address the issues in the Fed report.feedback

If confirmed, I intend to review the issue of Chinese currency manipulation. Currency manipulation is a serious infraction of free trade principles and needs to be effectively addressed. As Treasury Secretary, I will ensure that we defend American jobs by combating currency devaluation utilizing the reporting and monitoring functions of the Treasury and legislative processes established by Congress.feedback

The U.S. currency has been the most attractive currency to be in for very long periods of time. I think that's important, and I think you see that now more than ever.feedback

I think most people acknowledge NAFTA was negotiated a long time ago, that we should reopen this agreement.feedback

I believe (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) are very important entities to provide the necessary liquidity for housing finance. But we need housing reform. We should not just leave Fannie and Freddie as is for the next four years under government control without a fix.feedback

The president-elect has made it very clear that he would only change those sanctions if he got, quote, a better deal and we would get something in return.feedback

We believed in loan modifications, and we were financially incented to (provide) them when we could.feedback

I can assure that as chairman of the bank, I took these issues very seriously. There were mistakes. We regret those mistakes. We had hundreds of thousands of delinquent loans.feedback

That was a terrible situation. We worked very, very hard to move her to another home that they could afford.feedback

To the extent there were any errors, I am sorry for that.feedback

Since I was first nominated to serve as Treasury secretary, I have been maligned as taking advantage of others' hardships in order to earn a buck. Nothing could be further from the truth.feedback

On the contrary, I was committed to loan modifications intended to stop foreclosures. I ran a 'Loan Modification Machine.' Whenever we could do loan modifications, we did them.feedback

Unfortunately, not all of the homes could be saved through these programs, and despite my best efforts, some were, sadly, subject to foreclosure.feedback

What I've really been focused on is being a regional banker for the last eight years. I know what it takes to make sure that we can make loans to small and midmarket companies and that's going to be our big focus, making sure we scale back regulation so that we make sure the banks are lending.feedback

We'll cap the mortgage interest, but we'll allow some deductibility.feedback

When we work with Congress and go through this, it will be very clear. This is a middle-income tax cut. And the child-care credit is a big aspect of this.feedback

We'll look at potentially extending the maturity of the debt because eventually we are going to have higher interest rates.feedback

Have come up a little bit, which I think makes sense.feedback

Our most important priority is sustained economic growth, and I think we can absolutely get to sustained 3 to 4 percent GDP, and that is absolutely critical for the country.feedback

We've been in the business of regional banking and we understand what it is to make loans. That's the engine of growth to small- and medium-sized businesses.feedback

In addition to simplifying the law, we want to strip back parts of Dodd-Frank that prevent banks from lending.feedback

There will be 'no absolute tax cut for the upper class.feedback

By cutting corporate taxes, we're going to create huge economic growth and we'll have huge personal income, confirming he has been tapped for treasury secretary.feedback

By cutting corporate taxes, we're going to create huge economic growth and we'll have huge personal income.feedback

We're thrilled to work for the president-elect and honored to have these positions.feedback

We are very focused on lowering business taxes, making sure that U.S. corporations are competitive around the world, bringing back cash from all around the world that's sitting offshore and I think the American public is focused on that.feedback

I'd say the economic priorities are clearly taxes, regulatory, trade, infrastructure.feedback

We've been fundraising for two months and she's been fundraising for 20 years.feedback

We target to raise at least a million dollars per event. Clinton does a lot of smaller events – we don't do that.feedback

An investment in Donald Trump is an investment in our future with economic growth, job creation, and financial and physical security for all Americans.feedback

We had no fundraising effort whatsoever, and in five weeks with very broad support, you see how we're doing.feedback

This campaign and this election is all going to come down to two things: national security and the economy. I'm absolutely convinced he has plans on both to make this country great.feedback

Donald financed the campaign ahead of time, so there was no reason to have extra cash in the bank.feedback

We've really ramped up the effort this month. We've had some successful events in New York ... [and] those events have raised approximately $10 million in conjunction with the RNC.feedback

[Trump] loaned $50 million to the campaign. He's now forgiven that loan. So that is a contribution. [Trump] has also said he will contribute significantly more money.feedback

They're not going to replace [Lewandowski], per se. Paul is overall managing the strategy of the campaign. The campaign is in transition and growing.feedback

We've done about $6 million. [In] the first email that went out Monday, Donald matched $2 million online.feedback
