New reports indicate White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is preparing to depart the Trump administration after undermining the Trump administration’s immigration agenda, claiming the United States is “desperate” for more immigration.
Mulvaney made the remarks when speaking to an audience of well-connected political elites at a private event in England. Soon after they were reported on by the Washington Post, Mulvaney was heavily criticized by Trump supporters for endorsing policy one might expect to see promoted by longtime anti-Trumpers such as George Soros and Charles Koch.
The report of Mulvaney’s departure first surfaced in Ryan Girdusky’s populist newsletter. Mulvaney is said to be lining up a new gig in the world of Washington, D.C conservative think tanks.
Mulvaney’s departure, which Girdusky claims to have been informed of by three sources, would represent a victory for ‘MAGA’ conservatives within Trump administration, who have blasted the former Republican congressman for wildly diverging from President Donald Trump’s pro-American immigration platform.
President Trump ran on a platform of lowering annual levels of legal immigration, going on to waffle on the issue in a few presidential speeches since becoming President. Immigration totals have declined under his administration, and many economists have pointed to rising wages for working-class Americans as a benefit of the restrictionist platform.
A takedown from Tucker Carlson, who accused the former anti-Trumper (Mulvaney was caught on tape admitting he viewed Trump as a “terrible human being” in 2016) of carelessness for Donald Trump’s core base of supporters, may have proved instrumental in spurring Mulvaney’s tentative departure from the administration.
Mulvaney’s exit from the administration would represent one of two major victories for immigration hawks within the Trump administration in the past week. The new ‘public charge’ rule, which restricts access to welfare programs, food stamps and Medicaid to American citizens, entered into effect Monday.
President Donald Trump Pledges to Nominate A Woman as Next Supreme Court Justice
It’s going to be a woman.
President Trump revealed that he plans to nominate a woman as his next Supreme Court nominee during a rally on Saturday in North Carolina. The nominee, if confirmed, would replace longtime progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who passed away on Friday.
Reports indicate that President Trump plans to announce the identity of a SCOTUS nominee on either Monday or Tuesday. He suggested as such during his North Carolina rally, confirming that the nominee would be a woman. The crowd could be heard chanting “fill that seat,” indicative of the strong desire among conservatives for President Trump to exercise his constitutional duties and advance a nominee.

It will be a woman!"

Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa are considered to be strong candidates to fill the nomination, with the former almost being picked in 2018 to fill the vacancy ultimately filled by Brett Kavanaugh. Barrett is reportedly considered a front-runner in the selection process.
President Trump also cited the constitutional basis for nominating a Supreme Court justice, pointing out that Article 2 of the Constitution placed the imperative upon him as President to do as such. Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, a crucial difference from the divided government of 2016 when President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was blocked by the Senate.

Democrats are guaranteed to fight furiously to block the confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee advanced by President Trump, with Chuck Schumer himself saying that he wouldn’t accept the possibility of any new justices while Trump is in office, even if it’s during his second term.
Tentative confirmation proceedings, which will occur in the midst of the Presidential election, have the chance to make Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation process look like a gingerly walk in the park.
