Mick Mulvaney Biography
Mick Mulvaney, a former White House chief of staff and current special envoy to Northern Ireland, announced that he will resign.
“I called [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo last night to let him know that he was giving up on that. I can not do it. I can’t stay, “Mick Mulvaney told CNBC in an interview Thursday.
“Those who choose to stay, and I’ve talked to some of them, choose to stay because he worries that the president might make someone worse,” Mulvaney said.
His resignations follow those of several White House staff, including Stephanie Grisham, First Lady Melania Trump’s chief of staff and Under Secretary of the Press Sarah Matthews.
White House Social Secretary Rickie Niceta and Deputy National Security Adviser Matt Pottinger also resigned Wednesday.
Crowds of Trump supporters invaded the United States Capitol on Wednesday when a joint session of Congress assumed Electoral College certification that gave President-elect Joe Biden the votes necessary to win the presidency.
Several Republican senators and members of the House questioned the results.
After several hours of interruption due to the assault on the Capitol, Congress reconvened and certified the results early Thursday morning.
Soon after, Trump also released a statement through his communications adviser Dan Scavino that he is committed to an “orderly transition” on January 20.
“Although I totally disagree with the outcome of the election and the facts confirm me, there will be an orderly transition on January 20,” the statement said.
