Robots not a job killer, claims Trump treasury chief

While robotics is taking deeper root within the business realm, from warehouses to stores to everyday home life, the White House administration doesn't seem to view them as job killers.

In fact, according to a Business Insider report, President Donald Trump's treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, claims the robot threat to jobs is "not even on our radar."

That's what he shared with Mike Allen, co-founder of Axios, late last week, according to BI. He said the potential impact to jobs was "50 to 100 more years away," and that he is "not worried at all."
