President Trump’s Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had a recent public appearance at the University of California, Los Angeles, but he doesn’t want video of the event published because he was heckled by students.
Mnuchin asked the school not to publish footage of the altercation in which at least two student protesters shouted at him, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
“It wasn’t black people and brown people in the inner cities who did this, and yet you are punishing them,” one of the protesters said before being forcibly lifted by campus police and taken from the room. Another accused him of being a fascist, and the Journal notes that one of them told Mnuchin he is “a piece of sh*t.”
Despite the Treasury secretary’s efforts to suppress the video, the school decided to make it public.

Here’s video of Steven Mnuchin getting heckled. He begged UCLA to not release any video. I guess he didn’t see the other cameras in the room. #FireMnuchin pic.twitter.com/sr2oJ3nsEg
