During a talk on sanctions at the University of California, Los Angeles, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was heckled by protesters — and reportedly doesn’t want people to see what happened.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that Mnuchin asked the school not to publish video of the altercation in which at least two student protesters shouted at him.
“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 Mnuching he is “a piece of sh*t.”
