President Donald Trump floated the idea this weekend of naming Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, as his new Chief of Staff.
Citing three sources close to the president, Axios reported on Sunday evening that President Trump asked people privately who they think he should name to replace John Kelly. And Trump has additionally been asking those close to him what they think of Meadows.
Meadows previously said in a statement that serving as Chief of Staff would be an incredible honor.
The North Carolina Congressman is a huge ally to President Trump and is one of the few lawmakers who is actually trying to expose the evil Clinton cabal and Deep State machine.
