To apply a little Kremlinogy to the Trump agenda, the fact Mnuchin has been leapfrogged over the statutory positions of Sec. of Defense and Sec. of Energy and others, and outranks the CoS, DNI, Attn. Gen. etc., on the National_Security_Council#Principals_Committee tells us a lot of what the future holds. That, and few other details regarding economic and trade issues in NSPM-4.

Basically, Mnuchin heads up the NSC. On paper, Tillerson is in charge; but he was ranked #1 primarily for two reasons: (1) he was hired as a "yes man" in Trump& Flynn's scheme to seek rapprochament with Putin; and (2) a statutory member of the NSC was needed to be placed #1. Note this is civilian control over the Pentagon & Joint Chiefs, and priority over the intelligence community, counterterrorism, the Justice Dept. counter-intelligence and immigration issues. Trade, and innovation seem to be the top priorities. RobSThe coup plotters won, for now 18:27, 27 April 2017 (EDT)
