Donald Trump's New Finance Head Has History of Donating to Democrats

Steven Mnuchin has made more donations to Democratic candidates than to GOPers.

Steven Mnuchin, whom the campaign today introduced as Trump's national finance chairman, entered the political realm after working as the chairman and CEO of a private investment firm called Dune Capital Management.

"It’s a great privilege to be working with Mr. Trump to create a world class finance organization to support the campaign in the General Election," Mnuchin said in the campaign's release.

A review of Mnuchin's political donation history shows that he has made three times more donations to Democratic politicians than Republicans between 1997 and 2008.

He made other donations to Republican groups and PACs as well, but the recipients of those funds were not immediately clear.

Like Trump, Mnuchin has donated to Clinton in the past, making a total of five donations between 2000, when she was running for Senate, and 2007, when she started her first presidential run.

Mnuchin has also donated to Barack Obama, first when he was a senator in 2000 and then again in 2007, when Mnuchin donated the legal limit of $2,300 to Obama's presidential campaign.

Trump doesn't seem bothered by his donation history.

"Steven is a professional at the highest level with an extensive and very successful financial background," Trump said in a release announcing Mnuchin's hiring.
