Shew. The gold is still there.
That’s a relief.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin paid a rare official visit to Fort Knox to check out the nation’s gold stash Monday.
Before visiting the Ft. Knox vault, the former Hollywood movie producer quipped about the possibility that the gold wasn’t even there any more.
I assume the gold is still there. It would really be quite a movie if we walked in and there was no gold.’
Well, it doesn’t appear there will be a movie in the works.
‘Glad gold is safe!’ Mnuchin tweeted after visiting the facility.
The Treasury secretary said the US has about $200 billion in gold stored at Ft. Knox. The last time anybody other than Ft. Knox staff actually laid eyes on the gold was in 1974 when several members of congress visited the facility. The last time anybody audited the gold was in 1953.
