Former Goldman Sachs banker, Steven Mnuchin has been sworn in as President Trump’s Treasury secretary.

It comes after the Senate approved him in a party-line vote 53 to 48.

Mnuchin will now be the administration’s top official on financial regulation and economic diplomacy.

His hardest job will be managing a sprawling tax reform effort with Congress that seeks to slash business tax rates and enact a new border tax adjustment system aimed at boosting US exports.
