Mark Meadows Replaces Mick Mulvaney as White House Chief of Staff
President Donald Trump announced on Friday Rep. Mark Meadows
will replace Mick Mulvaney as the new chief of staff.
Mark Meadows has been a very close ally to President Trump
and has also been a committed proponent of the president’s border wall in Congress.
The president stated that Mulvaney will be the U.S. special
envoy for Northern Ireland.
This long-rumored move makes Meadows effectively the fourth
person to hold the chief of staff position during Trump’s regime.
Meadows, a Republican in his fourth term at 11th District in North Carolina, had in December announced that he was not seeking for the re-election after his term ends. He had served as the chairperson of the House
Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Operations for two terms.
According to one of the sources, Trump had been eyeing on
making the change, but he wanted to keep calm until after the impeachment.
