Accountable.US statement on Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin dismissing news that 3.1 million Americans lost their jobs last week as ‘not relevant’:

“Millions of Americans are wondering how they will continue to feed their families or pay the rent on April 1, but Steve Mnuchin had the gall to go on CNBC and tell its audience of wealthy investors that 3.1 million workers losing their jobs last week is ‘not relevant,'” said Kyle Herrig, president of government watchdog Accountable.US. “Maybe Mnuchin should stay off the television and go talk to the people this administration’s failed COVID-19 response is hurting most. Only then might he be able to grasp the cluelessness of his comments and how much real people are hurting.”
