Mnuchin posts photo claiming he’s ‘taking control of the #news for the day’
Donald Trump’s Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin posted a photo of himself in reportedly in an ABC News control room captioned with “Taking control of the #news for the day.”
- Mnuchin appeared on ABC News’ “This Week,” which was originating from the network’s Washington, D.C. studios this week.
- The control room was identified as an ABC News one by CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter.
- The photo’s caption, while likely meant in jest, was mocked for its use of the word “control” as media organizations increasingly become the target of the Trump administration.
- Meanwhile, Trump supporters latched on to the post as a way to further bash the “mainstream media.”
