US President Donald Trump Replaces Mick Mulvaney as his Chief of Staff

  • The US President Donald Trump has replaced Mick Mulvaney as his acting chief of staff with North Carolina lawmaker Mark Meadows. While making the announcement late on Friday, the US President thanked Mulvaney for serving “the administration so well” and announced his reassignment as “the United States Special Envoy for Northern Ireland.” Though the move was anticipated for weeks now (especially after Trump's impeachment acquittal a month ago), the announcement was abrupt. Political analysts privy to the situation say that removal of Mick Mulvaney as the chief of staff is part of the continued churning of the staff members after Trump is emboldened by his acquittal from the impeachment trials by the Republican-dominated Senate. Reports say that Trump was miffed with Mick Mulvaney as he was not happy with Mulvaney’s handling of the impeachment ordeal.
