Steven Mnuchin made millions as an investor. Many wondered why he would take the low paying job as US Treasury Secretary. The photo below may provide one of the answers to the question. Mnuchin is pictured with his trophy wife showing off newly printed dollars with his name affixed as the US Treasury Secretary. Mnuchin doesn't need a big salary he just needs some fame to impress his wife. He will get another chance for fame if the GOP passes a terrible tax bill that Mnuchin has been promoting in his new job as Treasury Secretary.
