Mnuchin: Trump Won't Hold Debt Ceiling Increase 'Hostage' Over Key Platform Issue

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says President Donald Trump is uninterested in holding an increase of the debt ceiling “hostage.” According to Reuters, Secretary Steven Mnuchin says Trump doesn't intend to force Congress to pass funding for a border wall with Mexico or any other legislation.

A debt ceiling suspension expired in March, and the Treasury has employed extraordinary measures to continue to borrow under the limit.
