Well this seems like a nod to a helpful campaigner but kind of a mismatch with the rest of his picks, http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/trump-to-pick-mnuchin-for-treasury-secretary-231962 This one might be what is best called a trial balloon? It's sort of like "See? Not a banker!" But then some of us say "Yah but he's a hedge fund manager, and ex-Goldman. Whaddya!?" And then Trump says, ok, so... get over it. ? Maybe. Some Demos are saying "not so fast" and making noises about Mnuchin making money off predatory lenders when he took bought the assets of IndyMacBank (renaming it One West) after the financial collapse. Well the guy is smart. Smart enough to run Treasury for the accounts of the people, who knows. He and Trump are talking Dodd Frank needs to be reined in. OK then... Maybe not. Get popcorn for the hearings on this one if Trump does make the nomination.
