On Saturday, Trump's Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin got quite the surprise for the holidays.

The package, discovered at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at 965 Bel Air Road, was a box filled with manure, Sgt. R. Briggs of the LAPD West Los Angeles Station said. Fearing the worst, the Secret Service also became involved in the incident.

A suspicious gift-wrapped box was left on Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's Bel-AIr driveway.


The package also came with a Christmas card with derogatory remarks about Mnuchin, President Donald Trump and the $1.5 trillion GOP tax bill that was signed into law this week.

It was determined the package contained a "pretty good quantity" of horse manure, police officials told various media outlets.

No additional information has been released on the package's contents.

Police said the package was delivered in Christmas wrapping, and the sender was listed as "the American people". He has had a career in banking and finance, and previously worked for Goldman Sachs.
