The Senate confirmed (by a vote of 53 to 47) Steven T. Mnuchin, to be Treasury secretary on Monday. He is going to help drive the administration’s plans to overhaul the tax code, renegotiate trade deals around the world, review and then remake some financial regulations.

“He has experience managing large and complicated private-sector enterprises and in negotiating difficult compromises and making tough decisions — and being accountable for those decisions,” as Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Finance Committee characterized Steven Mnuchin.
