This pick basically translates to Trump giving the middle finger to his working-class voters.
There is now a major campaign to make sure the American people know what a massive betrayal this is—and demand that Senate Democrats fight back.
Mnuchin was Trump’s top fundraiser, and his record is so corrupt, it's unbelievable, even for Trump. Check it out:
- During the depths of the mortgage meltdown, his
company OneWest foreclosed on 36,000 homes, including those of elderly
retirees, using robo-signing to turn the company into a "foreclosure
machine" while pocketing billions in bailout money.1
- He swindled $50 million out of a media company he
ran by resigning two months before the company filed for bankruptcy and
using his connections to get preferential payouts.2
- He made $3.2 million in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi
scheme, and avoided having to pay back the victims because his army of
lawyers convinced a judge that too much time had passed before he got
- He's donated more than $120,000 dollars to politicians in both political parties to gain access and influence.4
This nomination is the clearest evidence yet that Trump conned the working-class voters who supported him. And if Senate Democrats don't fight this nomination, it will only confirm the voter's belief that both sides are equally corrupt.
We're launching a website calling out the blatant corruption in Trump's cabinet and mobilizing hundreds of thousands of people to demand that the Senate call out Trump's "drain the swamp" lies.
