[Ed. – Elizabeth Warren hardest hit.]
President Trump on Friday named White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as his new acting chief of staff, saying the former South Carolina Republican congressman will replace John Kelly as his top aide. …
The president said Kelly, who recently announced plans to leave the White House, will stay through 2018.
“John will be staying until the end of the year,” Trump tweeted. “He is a GREAT PATRIOT and I want to personally thank him for his service!”
The president did not say why Mulvaney will serve in an “acting” capacity.
Mulvaney, who served in Congress before joining the Trump administration, also served as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau while simultaneously running the White House budget office.
