Mnuchin said the strength of the dollar and stock market is a reflection of confidence in the US economy.

In the midst of the discussion, however, came this unusual endorsement from Mnuchin. Mnuchin had lunch at the White House Friday with Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

"I'm optimistic it's going to pass", he said.

At the White House, press secretary Sean Spicer acknowledged the August deadline is an "ambitious one" for such a comprehensive and complicated project, but he said it's a goal the administration "is going to try to stick to". "He's got incredible energy, and he's unbelievable healthy".

President Donald Trump's message has been that tax reform and his other pro-growth policies are impossible until Republicans are able to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. Indie developer Brian Mueller called his comments "dangerously incompetent", while former Clinton Administration official Larry Irving said that Mnuchin's view was "actually kind of frightening". "Let me tell you".

Clashes in Syria capital after surprise rebel assault
The attackers utilized numerous guerilla warfare techniques, including auto bombs, suicide attacks and the use of secret tunnels. The attack came just days before a fresh round of UN-brokered peace talks in Geneva aimed at ending Syria's six-year war.

Mnuchin, who said he "helped the president think through his economic programs" during the presidential campaign, seemed quite impressed with the way his boss' was handling his new job. He also dismissed concerns that tax reform could run into the same hurdles as the health care replacement did.

Mnuchin went on to clarify his comment a bit, noting that he doesn't think self-driving cars use artificial intelligence because "that's computers and using real technology we have today".

In February, Axios examined Trump's diet and fitness habits.

Mnuchin did not commit specifically on the goal but said, "The president's objective is a middle income tax cut".

In the history of the United States of America, it has not typically been part of the job requirement for the treasury secretary to fawn over the president and go to great, nearly suspiciously over-the-top lengths to impress upon the public what great shape he is in. "We have very good genetics".
