A group of 184 graduates of Riverdale Country School in New York City wrote a letter to Mnuchin, the New York Times reports, saying, "Like your classmates from Yale, we believe your resignation would be the most honorable choice". I've never asked the government to pay for my personal travel.

Mnuchin said as a member of the president's National Security Council he needed a secure communication link with Washington and his staff put in a request for use of an Air Force jet for his honeymoon trip with his wife Louise Linton to Scotland, France and Italy.

A spokesman for the Treasury Department told ABC News that the secretary requested government travel for his honeymoon out of a concern for maintaining a secure method of communication. "It is imperative that he have access to secure communications and it is our practice to consider a wide range of options to ensure that he has these capabilities during his travel, including the possible use of military aircraft".

The Treasury's Office of Inspector General said in late August it was reviewing the flight taken by Mnuchin and his wife, Louise Linton, to Louisville and Fort Knox, Ky. The Treasury has said it is looking into requests for use of government aircraft after the trip drew criticism. So, to show that the Trump administration doesn't have cosmopolitan bias, the Treasury Secretary, appointed by the president who lives in a gold tower in Midtown Manhattan, flew on a government plane to watch the eclipse on top of a pile of gold, then said that only simple Kentuckians care about i - not us smart and cool New Yorkers. "This was one of the things we explored". (Linton later apologized for her reaction after making her account private, calling her response "condescending"). Linton posted a photo of herself and her husband stepping off a government jet and wrote, "Great #daytrip to #Kentucky!"

"Aw! Did you think this was a personal trip?!"
