Mnuchin says U.S. growth prospects not fully reflected in markets

WASHINGTON, March 24 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Friday that he believes that President Donald Trump’s economic policies can produce more growth in the U.S. economy which is not fully reflected in financial markets.

Mnuchin said at an event sponsored by news website Axios that he is still aiming to achieve passage of comprehensive tax reform by the time Congress takes its August recess. He also said he expects the Trump administration’s Obamacare replacement bill to pass later on Friday. (Reporting by David Lawder; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
