Trump's Chief of Staff pick calls him 'terrible human being'

Mick Mulvaney has been tapped to be acting Chief of Staff for Trump, per a tweet by the President on Friday evening.

"Yes, I'm supporting Donald Trump", the incumbent Republican, who later won reelection, says in the video. "I'm doing so as enthusiastically as I can given the fact that he's a awful human being", Mulvaney said on November 2, 2016.

"Mick has done an outstanding job while in the Administration", Trump posted.

"I am not aware that he is under consideration but, as I think all of us here would recognize, he would be great in any role that the president chooses to put him in", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said of the news, which was also reported by CBS. John will be staying until the end of the year.

Trump added that John Kelly, the current chief of staff who recently announced his departure, will remain in the job till the end of the year.

White House reporters tried to get a comment about the announcement, but officials did not make themselves available for comment.

"He is a GREAT PATRIOT and I want to personally thank him for his service!"

Mulvaney made the remark at a debate against his Democratic challenger for South Carolina's 5th Congressional district. He deleted it shortly before being selected to head Office of Management and Budget. "Congressman Mulvaney continued to support then-Candidate Trump throughout the election, and his support for President Trump has never wavered while serving within the Administration".

Mulvaney's estimated net worth is between $3.2 and $7.3 million, the New York Times reported previous year. "No", Mulvaney said. He said he did not think Mr. Trump is a good role model for his two sons, but he did not think Hillary Clinton is a good role model for his daughter.
