Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Sunday that the White House is willing to do “whatever it takes” to provide economic stimulus but said the Trump administration wants to wait before providing any further aid to states.
“What the president and I are now saying is, we spent a lot of money. A lot of money is not even into the economy yet,” Mnuchin told host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”
“Let’s take the next few weeks” to allow the aid to take hold, he added.
“We just want to make sure that before we jump back in and spend another few trillion of taxpayers’ money that we want to do it carefully,” Mnuchin said. “We’re willing to spend whatever it takes. but whatever it takes needs to be done carefully.”
