After spending his campaign criticizing the influence of Wall Street money in politics, and after successfully painting his opponent, Hillary Clinton, as being too cozy with Wall Street, and with investment bank Goldman Sachs in particular, President-elect Donald Trump announces that his new Treasury Secretary will be Steve Mnuchin, a 17-year veteran of Goldman Sachs.

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts responded by calling Steve Mnuchin the Forrest Gump of the 2008 financial meltdown.
