美國財長Mnuchin: Trump講美元太強只是陳述事實


美國財長Steven Mnuchin接受FT專訪時表示,白宮推出稅務革方案的時間表,的確受到醫改法案不獲通過一事影響。他表示,本來稅改的預定在八月推出的時間表實為相當急速,現時經過醫改一事後這時間表已難以實現。


Steven Mnuchin said 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 started as [an] aggressive timeline,” the former Goldman Sachs banker said in an interview with the Financial Times. “It is fair to say it is probably delayed a bit because of the healthcare.” 

另外,當被問到Donald Trump上週發表「美元太強」言論,Mnuchin重申美國沒有干預外匯市場,指Trump的言論只是陳述事實,強調講同做是兩回事(”There’s a big difference between talk and action”)。
