  • Honeymoon plane request was about national security – Mnuchin

"Being a New Yorker, I don't have any interest in watching the eclipse", he said. "First of all, the government never paid for any of my personal travel", Mnuchin said at a conference sponsored by Politico.

Anyway, taxpayers and their representatives in Congress got a little frosted about paying for Mnuchin's expedition to the Temple Of Ra in Kentucky, and they were further frosted by the revelation that he and Minton also had requested a government aircraft to fly to Europe for their extended honeymoon. "It is imperative that he have access to secure communications and it is our practice to consider a wide range of options to ensure that he has these capabilities during his travel, including the possible use of military aircraft".

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, a villainous Wall Street muppet from a 1980s Jim Henson film, continues to draw criticism for his use of a government plane to fly to Fort Knox, Kentucky on a trip that included a viewing of the solar eclipse.

Treasury officials defended the trip as "official government travel", the Washington Post reported.

Government planes are typically reserved for Cabinet members and those with direct involvement in matter of national security, according to ABC.

Linton later apologized for the post and deleted the photo.

Trump told reporters he had "total confidence" in Mnuchin.

Linton's social media misstep featured a posted a photo boasting about her designer accessories, followed by Marie Antoinette-like attack on the online OR critic she chided as "adorably out of touch". Did you think this was a personal trip?! Adorable! Did you think the United States govt paid for our honeymoon or personal travel?! "Pretty sure the amount we sacrifice per year is a lot more than you'd be willing to sacrifice if the choice was yours".
