The White House intends to make acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s role permanent according to a report from Politico.
Citing four current and former senior administration officials, the report claimed that the change to drop “ acting ” from Mulvaney’s title is forthcoming, although officials cautioned that President Trump will ultimately make the final decision and he could change his mind.
Politico also reported that Mulvaney meets at least twice a day with the president and has hired roughly eight staffers at the White House.
Mulvaney, a former South Carolina Congressman, would be the third permanent chief of staff in the Trump presidency, following Reince Priebus and John Kelly.
Mulvaney also holds the title as director of the Office of Management and Budget, though he has ceded day-to-day leadership to Russ Vought.
