And after blasting Goldman Sachs during the campaign, Trump has picked several Goldman Sachs veterans for senior roles in his administration.

Last week, Mnuchin said that enacting tax reform legislation ahead of August was not "realistic", backing down on Trump's promise for tax reforms.

Donald Marron, who served on former President George W. Bush's Council of Economic Advisers in 2008 and 2009, said the administration's seeming estimate of the favorable feedback effects from lower taxes was "surprisingly large", though he cautioned he hadn't seen the details of the plan.
