FreedomWorks Statement in Response to President Trump’s Decision to Name Mick Mulvaney as Acting Chief of Staff

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Trump’s decision today to nominate Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), as acting White House Chief of Staff, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Mick Mulvaney is an excellent choice to serve as acting chief of staff. During his time as Director of the OMB, Mulvaney has shown to be a strong fiscal conservative who has been critical in keeping executive agencies in check. Director Mulvaney boasts an impressive resume, having served in the House representing South Carolina’s fifth district. I have no doubt that as acting White House Chief of Staff, Mulvaney will continue to help advance President Trump’s bold conservative agenda.”
