Republican Rep. Mark Meadows is batting back rumors that he will be the next White House chief of staff while not quite denying them either.
“Yeah, I know. That’s been more floating my name than reality,” the North Carolina congressman told the Washington Examiner when asked about the job, currently held by Mick Mulvaney. Thought to be on solid footing more recently, Mulvaney has at times been said to be on thin ice with President Trump.
Meadows, who announced his retirement from Congress Thursday morning, did not rule out other administration posts either.
