The White House on Wednesday sent out a press release incorrectly referring to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin as the “Secretary of Commerce.”

Wilbur Ross serves as President Trump’s Commerce secretary.

Earlier Wednesday, Mnuchin, along with Gary Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, briefed the White House press corps about the administration’s new tax plan

The Trump administration is proposing striking most deductions from the tax code and simplifying personal income taxes into three brackets, down from seven, among many other changes.
