In a congressional debate just weeks before President Donald Trump won the 2016 election, then-congressman Mick Mulvaney referred to his future boss as a “terrible human being,” according to a Saturday Daily Beast report.
He made the remark when asked who he’d be supporting in the upcoming election.
“Yes, I am supporting Donald Trump, but I’m doing so despite the fact that I think he’s a terrible human being,” he said as recorded by The State.
Mulvaney was named Trump’s acting chief of staff on Friday, to temporarily replace John Kelly. He will keep his post as OMB Director and work in the two positions concurrently.
