(NewsReady.com) – President Donald Trump appointed a new chief of staff recently, the last move in his effort to tighten up the White House. Congressman Mark Meadows took the place of Mick Mulvaney, who’s been acting chief of staff for over a year:
I am pleased to announce that Congressman Mark Meadows will become White House Chief of Staff. I have long known and worked with Mark, and the relationship is a very good one….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2020
In December, Meadows announced he would not run for re-election. This decision led to rumors he’d take the position as Trump’s right-hand in the West Wing as he’s vocally supported the president throughout his time in office. Now, the rumors of his fate have panned out.
Mark Meadows was originally slated to finish his last term as representative of North Carolina’s 11th district, but now he’s leaving Congress earlier than expected. He’s also the former chair of the Freedom Caucus and has been very supportive of Trump’s border wall.
