A psychologist claims to have sent an unusual Christmas gift to the US politician

A man says he sent a parcel of manure to US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

A letter attached said it was a protest against new tax laws.

Republicans say changes will make the tax codes simpler. They include measures like reducing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20% and increasing tax credit for children.

But some say these measures will disproportionately benefit corporations whilst at the same time squeezing the middle class.

The man, Robert Strong, a psychologist from Los Angeles says he had delivered the parcel. He also attached a note saying he was merely returning the ‘gift’ of the Christmas tax bill.

The Treasury has not responded to the delivery.
