Will The New US Treasury Secretary Be The Man Who Funded Avatar, X-Men And The LEGO Movie?

steven-mnuchinHe's the best there is at what he does. And what he does ain't pretty.

Steven Terner Mnuchin headed up Donald Trump's finance team during his campaign for President. And the good dog just got his bone, it is expected that he will be nominated for Secretary to the Treasury by Trump.

Mnuchin spent 17 years at investment firm Goldman Sachs and became a partner, before setting up Dune Capital investors. He then joined Relativity Media and, later Ratpac-Dune working with Brett Ratner and James Packer. Between them, he helped finance Hollywood blockbusters including Avatar and the X-Men franchise as well as The Legi Movie, Mad Max: Fury Road, American Sniper, Gravity, and Life of Pi.

Controversially, he resigned from Relativity Media, a short while before they declared bankruptcy. But we know that's the kind of thing that would never put Trump off.
