Weâ€™re so old we remember when Donald Trump criticized George Soros, hedge funds and the influence of Goldman Sachsâ€¦
Anyway,Â hereâ€™s a little bit about his past political donations from the Huffington Post in 2011:
Politically, Mnuchin is a hedge fund executive who hedges his bets. During the last presidential season, according to OpenSecrets.org, he donated money to the campaigns of Republican Mitt Romney ($2300) and Rudolph Giuliani ($2300), and Democrats Hillary Clinton ($2300), Bill Richardson ($2100), Chris Dodd ($2300) John Edwards ($2100), and Barack Obama ($2300). (His wife Heather contributed $2,300 to both Chris Dodd and Hillary Clinton.)
