Axl Rose and Trump’s finance ministers clash

No friends: US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Guns-N-Roses singer Axl Rose.

Rock star Axl Rose has shot sharply against Steven Mnuchin on Twitter – and what nobody expected: the US Treasury Secretary even replied. Which didn’t make things any better.

Before moving into the White House, Donald Trump was known to host a reality TV show. It is therefore not surprising that politics and show business mix again and again during the term of office of the 45th US President. For example, the president has a buddy relationship with rapper Kanye West, to name just one example.

Now these two worlds meet again – but in a hostile manner. The Washington Post wrote of a “Twitter feud that no one saw coming”. In one corner: Steven Mnuchin, Donald Trump’s finance minister. His opponent: Axl Rose, singer of the rock band Guns N ‘Roses.

The rock star, who rarely speaks on the short message service with around 300 tweets, wrote on Wednesday “It’s official! Whatever anyone thought about Steve Mnuchin before, he’s officially an asshole. »

To the general astonishment, Mnuchin replied promptly: “What was the last thing you did for your country?” He wrote in his replica. Instead of the flag of the USA, he accidentally put the flag of Liberia at the end of his entry, which is not unlike that of the USA.

Mnuchin corrected his flag faux pas again, but that didn’t stop Rose from being sarcastic: “My mistake, I didn’t understand that we were emulating Liberia’s economic model.” He then railed that unlike the Trump administration, he was not responsible for more than 70,000 coronavirus deaths in the United States. Unlike Mnuchin, he also has no government office and does not advise citizens to travel through the United States during a pandemic.

Mnuchin had told Fox Business on Monday that he could not yet say whether international travel would be possible again this year. However, he appeared to be encouraging Americans to travel to the United States in the wake of easing containment measures. “This is a great time for people to discover America.”

It is not entirely clear what caused Axl Rose’s anger on Steven Mnuchin. The rock star is a stubborn critic of the Republican Trump. He has repeatedly resisted the fact that songs by Guns N ‘Roses are played in Trump’s campaign appearances. At the 2018 midterm elections, Rose called on his fans to vote for the Democrats.

There will probably be no reconciliation so quickly between Rose and the Republicans. Or, to put it in the title of the last Guns-N’-Roses tour: «Not in this Lifetime».
