Will Sheryl Sandberg Be Treasury Secretary? What Facebook Executive Says About Joining Hillary Clinton's Cabinet

Could Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg be tapped to serve as treasury secretary under Hillary Clinton? Some liberals are concerned over Clinton’s potential victory, according to a new report. If she becomes president, there is worry the cabinet would be populated by CEOs and other big business executives, Politico reported Sunday.

Although Sandberg has said that she plans on remaining at Facebook, she has received support from those who think her presence could be beneficial for the Clinton administration. “She ticks an awful lot of boxes, and she would be great at the job even if she doesn't have extensive markets experience," a Clinton outside adviser stated.

She has previously advised the Clinton campaign on women’s issues and several of the presidential candidate’s advisers view Sandberg as experienced and progressive thanks to her time tenures at Google and Facebook. Sandberg, who wrote the book “Lean In,” is known for being vocal about her opinion on women in the workplace.

In September, Sandberg wrote in the Wall Street Journal about her findings from the Women in the Workplace 2016 report based on a survey from 132 companies. “And all of us can encourage women to keep negotiating—until the day that it’s seen as perfectly normal, and even expected, for women to ask for more. More women are leaning in—and we’ll all go farther when the workplace stops pushing back,” Sandberg wrote.

Some progressives have doubt in Sandberg’s ability to serve as Treasury Secretary and believe she would do better if appointed to anything else. “When you look under the hood, there are complicated and potentially very messy issues,” a Senate Democratic aide stated. “How her role at Facebook might color her perspective on tax reform and complicate the atmospherics around her taking a central role on that set of issues raise particularly big questions," the aide added.

If Sandberg decided to leave the social media company and accept a Clinton nomination, she would be the first woman in history to lead the U.S. Department of Treasury.
