Mnuchin came under fire Wednesday after news emerged that he sought to use a government plane for his honeymoon with Louise Linton to Europe last month. It added to the scrutiny over their use of an Air Force jet for a trip to Kentucky on Aug. 21 to talk about tax policy and to visit Fort Knox, which is under review by the Treasury’s inspector general’s office. The inquiry has since been broadened to cover all of Mnuchin’s use of and requests for government aircraft.
Mnuchin and his wife, actress Louise Linton, eventually decided not to travel on a government plane, the Treasury Department said in a statement after an ABC News report on the matter. His request is now part of an inquiry by the Treasury Department’s Office of Inspector General, ABC news reported Wednesday, citing unnamed officials. The cost is about $25,000 an hour, ABC reported, citing an Air Force spokesman.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Trump administration is considering plans to backdate changes to the U.S. tax regime to the start of the year. Backdating is something we’re considering “and it would be a big boon for the economy,” Mnuchin said at CNBC’s Delivering Alpha conference in New York. Mnuchin said he doesn’t know if he can achieve the Trump administration’s goal to lower the corporate tax rate to 15 percent. "I don’t know if we will be able to achieve that, Mnuchin said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
