In a heated $ 5.7 billion round of negotiations to build a border wall, President Donald Trump abused incumbent Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney as he tried to conclude a deal.
According to Axios, Sunday's story quoted sources that were present at the White House House Room on January 4 broke Trump's prize, but Mulvaney was ready to come down.
In describing the scene, one of Axio's sources reported that Mulvaney had stated "if Dems were out of sync with $ 5.7 [billion] and the president was out of favor with $ 1
According to reports, the president sent the president When he interrupted Mulvaney, he said to a fit: "They screwed up everything, Mick."
A CNN article published on Sunday told the same story, quoting an official in the room who recalled Trump: Stop, stop it, stop – what are you doing? You're fucking, Mick. "
A Trump administration official told Axios that the report was" an exaggerated account of the exchange that does not reflect the good relationship Mulvaney has built with the president over the last two years. "
Mulvaney, who is also director of the Office of Management and Budget, said last week that he does not believe that the partial closure of the federal government, which was partly triggered by the border wall debate, will be over in the foreseeable future. In its fourth week, this is the longest shutdown in US history.
While the official who spoke with Axios claimed Mulvaney had a positive relationship with the president, a 2015 radio interview that had been donned by CNNs KFile again showed that Mulvaney had once called Trump's wall position "absurdly and almost childish ".
In addition, The State, a South Carolina newspaper, reported in 2016 that Mulvaney said in the run-up to Election Day that he support Trump despite the fact I think he's a terrible person. "
