Good News: Rep. Mark Meadows To Be White House Chief Of Staff

Mark Meadows
In what is possibly the best news to come out of Washington DC since President Trump was exonerated and acquitted in the Democrats’ politically motivated impeachment scam, the President announced on Friday that Rep. Mark Meadows (NC-11) would replace Mick Mulvaney as White House Chief of Staff.

Mulvaney is a former Member of the House of Representatives who served South Carolina’s Fifth Congressional District. In the first part of the Trump era Mulvaney was one of the rock stars of the new administration, serving as Director of the Office of Management and Budget and Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Many conservatives were pleased to see Mulvaney appointed Acting White House Chief of Staff to replace John Kelly, whose disloyalty to President Trump and his agenda had become increasingly obvious.

However, it seemed to many observers that Mulvaney’s political judgment was soon failing him and it appeared he was quickly burned out by the job, causing many conservatives to worry that he was not up to guiding the Trump White House through the 2020 election.

Mick Mulvaney’s honorable departure from the White House to an ambassadorial-level appointment as Special Envoy for Northern Ireland was a relief to conservatives and a well-earned endorsement of Mulvaney’s loyal service to President Trump.

Mark Meadows was an early supporter of Donald Trump’s and a true believer in the MAGA agenda. He is universally recognized as a savvy inside operator who understands Washington’s levers of power and how to deploy them to advance the President’s agenda – something that has been sorely lacking in the Trump White House since Day One.

He also has some decent relationships with some Capitol Hill Democrats, but we don’t expect that to lessen the acrimony with which Democrats view the President.

Most importantly, Mark Meadows knows how to keep message discipline, something that Republicans desperately need going into the 2020 election.

Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted his endorsement of Meadows, saying:

I have tremendous confidence @MarkMeadows will serve President Trump well as his new Chief of Staff. 

Mark has shown the ability to navigate the many cross-currents in Congress and has strong relationships across the aisle.

Prolific conservative social media influencer Lisa Mei Crowley @LisaMei62 tweeted:

Freedom Caucus in the WH!

And ACT for America’s Brigitte Gabriel @ACTBrigitte summed up our views in this tweet:

President Trump has made a FANTASTIC decision by putting Mark Meadows in as WH Chief of Staff!

The former chair of the Freedom Caucus is as Conservative as they come, and will serve our country and President with honor, patriotism, and resolve.

It doesn't get better than this!!

Now that the announcement has been made, the sooner Mark Meadows gets into the Chief of Staff’s office in the West Wing, the better things will be for President Trump, who still faces some significant challenges going into the 2020 election.

Among Mark Meadows’ top challenges will be these four:

First, Meadows will have to continue to rid the White House of the Democrat sleeper agents, wreckers and leakers who have been undermining President Trump and his agenda since Inauguration Day.

Second, Meadows will have to keep the coronavirus message and the implementation of the Administration’s strategy to deal with it on track. This may be Meadows’ most difficult job because it requires the merger of politics and effective government action to produce a quantifiable result.

Third, he must keep the Trump White House staff focused on selling the MAGA agenda in the face of House Democrat obstruction – this means keeping the domestic policy and economic policy staff churning out executive actions that help advance the Trump agenda and show the Democrats as the do nothing obstructionists they are.

Fourth, and perhaps most importantly, he will have to be an effective broker between the various factions who have the President’s ear, i.e. the New York liberals, such as daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, versus the hardcore MAGA crowd, versus the remaining Washington insiders. This is especially crucial on election year hot potatoes such as immigration and the economic response to the coronavirus and the trade issues with China.

Democrats and their allies in the media have tried to make Mulvaney’s departure and Meadows appointment as some big surprise “firing” of Mulvaney, but we’ve expected this move ever since Mark Meadows announced he was not running for a fifth term in Congress. It’s a great move on President Trump’s part and we thank Mark Meadows for accepting this incredible responsibility – we know he will do a great job advancing the MAGA agenda as White House Chief of Staff.
