Trump Reportedly Lashed Out at Mulvaney Over Shutdown: ‘You Just F–ked it All Up, Mick’
President Donald Trump is reportedly not at all happy with his new acting chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney.
The tongue-lashing came during a Jan.4 meeting in the Situation Room, according to an Axios report.
Mulvaney inserted himself into the conversation and tried to negotiate a compromise sum of money, according to the sources in the room. Mulvaney said “that if Dems weren’t OK with $5.7 [billion] and the president wasn’t OK with $1.3 [the Democratic offer] … he was trying to say we should find a middle ground,” one of the sources said, paraphrasing Mulvaney’s remarks.
In response, Trump reportedly cut Mulvaney off and scolded, “You just fucked it all up, Mick.”
CNN also separately reported on the incident, noting that Mulvaney had been “talking about the offer that Democrats had made to reopen the federal government at $1.3 billion figure, that there was an agreement between Republicans and Democrats until the president changed his mind” at the time.
That is when the CNN source also said Trump swore at Mulvaney, cutting him off at mid-sentence and demanding he stop.
The CNN source added that there was shockingly no reaction from the room when Trump lashed out.
