Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has touted his ability to self-fund most of his campaign, named a hedge fund veteran on Thursday as finance chairman for his general election bid.
Steven Mnuchin, chairman and CEO of Dune Capital Management, said in a statement he will help Trump "create a world-class finance organization" to fuel his campaign. Mnuchin previously was chairman of OneWest Bank Group and was a partner at Goldman Sachs.
"Steven is a professional at the highest level with an extensive and very successful financial background. He brings unprecedented experience and expertise to a fundraising operation that will benefit the Republican Party and ultimately defeat Hillary Clinton," Trump said in a statement.
