President Donald Trump said Mick Mulvaney will remain as his chief of staff following the president’s acquittal in the Senate‘s impeachment trial, as the White House prepares to purge other officials.
Trump said while departing the White House on Friday that a CNN report that Mulvaney’s future is in doubt was a “false report.” He answered “yes” when asked if he would keep his chief of staff, who remains in an “acting” capacity.
The White House is weighing a plan to dismiss Alexander Vindman from the National Security Council after he delivered damning testimony regarding Ukraine in the House impeachment inquiry, according to people familiar with the matter. Asked if Vindman was on his way out, Trump said “they’ll be making that decision.”
