President Trump just announced his new Chief of Staff last night and we couldn’t be happier with his pick.
Mick Mulvaney is a superb choice because he understands Washington and said as much after the effort to repeal Obamacare failed. The video below is from the defeat in March of 2017…This is fantastic!
WOW! You don’t have to read between the lines with this guy!
Director of the Office of Management Budget Mick Mulvaney was on with Chuck Todd and let it rip on what he thinks of DC.
The swamp is deeper than they thought…
This man is perfect for Chief of Staff! He gets D.C. and how it’s a dogfight every day.
TRANSCRIPT FROM REAL CLEAR POLITICS:
CHUCK TODD: Let me start with this. So the president himself pins this on the Freedom Caucus, Club for Growth, Heritage Foundation. So essentially conservative interest groups and the most conservative caucus in the House, a caucus you were a member of just six months ago.
MICK MULVANEY: Yeah, and I think there’s probably plenty of blame to go around. As we sat over the last two days and tried to figure out what happened, I think what happened is that Washington won. I think the one thing we learned this week is that Washington was a lot more broken than President Trump thought that it was.
So what you have is the status quo wins and, unfortunately, the folks back home lost. You can blame it on the Freedom Caucus if you want to. But there’s also a lot of moderates, Charlie Dent will be on your show in a little bit, who are also against the bill. So it’s sort of the powers that be in Washington that won.
CHUCK TODD: So the Republican Party–
MICK MULVANEY: And the folks back home–
CHUCK TODD: –has not changed Washington after taking over the House in ’10, taking over the Senate in ’14, and taking over the White House now?
MICK MULVANEY: I think more importantly, we haven’t been able to change Washington in the first 65 days. And I think if there’s anything that’s disappointing and sort of an educational process to the Trump Administration was that this place was a lot more rotten than we thought that it was, and that I thought it was, because I’ve been here for six years. I know the Freedom Caucus. I helped found it. I never thought it would come to this.
