MNUCHIN: Well, again this goes back to again I think we’ve got a great economic team OK? You know Gary Cohn and I speak multiple times a day. Wilbur Ross and I have worked very closely for long periods of time. We’re all addressing these trade issues. There’s a plan on these trade issues. We’re reaching out to our foreign counterparts.
