Rep. Mark Meadows Named as White House Chief of Staff


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.
