Financial Expert Dan Celia Says Trump’s Pick for Treasury Will Run Department Without Politics

November 30, 2016

Steven Mnuchin, Along with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Will Help Economy Grow Through Fair Trade, Tax Reform

PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—President-elect Donald Trump has announced two more picks for his administration, this time in the economic realm. This morning, Trump made his choice for treasury secretary official with the naming of Steven Mnuchin. Wilbur Ross has also been named commerce secretary. 

After the announcement, financial expert and nationally syndicated radio and television host Dan Celia, leader of Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM,, said that Washington is already full of political insiders, and the last thing America needs—especially the American economy—are more politicians who have never managed business, but rather, whose knowledge lies mainly in being a “good politician.”

“There are certainly some departments that are far more politicized and political in nature than others,” Celia said. “The treasury department should not be one of them. Trump’s pick of Steven Mnuchin is a move that could potentially have a positive impact on that department and for the American economy. Mnuchin is indeed an insider on Wall Street, but similar to Wilbur Ross, is also a financier who is far more qualified and experienced to run the treasury department than most politicians. It is also far more likely that someone like Mnuchin will create an agenda for a more effective and efficient treasury department—and do it without any political agenda.”

Mnuchin told CNBC this morning that a crucial action item is to boost the economy through tax and trade reform, and that he believes the U.S. economy can grow at a sustained rate of 3 percent to 4 percent. 

“There will be plenty willing to guide him through the political maze of Washington,” Celia added. “Perhaps this will be beginning of a new ideology, one where we stop demonizing everyone on Wall Street and begin to realize that there is a wealth of experience available to us, and if we can draw upon that knowledge, it will be a step in the right direction for the economy. After all, the American people did not make their voices heard on Election Day so that more political hacks could run the country.”
