FT: Mnuchin Warns of Tax Reform Delay Following Healthcare Setback

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Trump administration’s timetable for tax reform is set to falter following setbacks in negotiations with Congress over healthcare, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

Mnuchin told the Financial Times in an interview that the target to get tax reforms through Congress and on President Donald Trump’s desk before August was “highly aggressive to not realistic at this point”.

“It is fair to say it is probably delayed a bit because of the healthcare,” Mnuchin told the newspaper.

Mnuchin also told the Financial Times he agreed with Trump’s view that the dollar’s strength in the short term was hurting exports, but said he saw the currency’s strength over the long term as a positive.

“As the world’s currency, the primary reserve currency, I think that over long periods of time the strength of the dollar is a good thing,” the Financial Times quoted Mnuchin
