The conservative Washington Examiner’s writers had a one-on-one interview with Donald Trump this week at the Oval Office, during which they asked about acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and why he was so unliked by Republicans.
Writers with the Examiner asked Trump if he was happy with the work Mulvaney was doing.
Trump decided not to comment on it, suggesting he’s unhappy with Mulvaney’s work.
“Happy?” he asked. “I don’t want to comment on it.”
The Examiner asked about Republican senators, who are unhappy with the work Mulvaney is doing.
“I could see that,” Trump confessed.
Trump went on to blame Democrats for the problems that Mulvaney is facing.
“We had scumbags after us,” Trump said.
Mulvaney is Trump’s third chief of staff in just three years. Trump had previously criticized former President Barack Obama for having three chiefs of staff during his 8-year tenure.
