Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is finding himself on shaky ground following a pair of public appearances that produced more problems than solutions for his boss, President Trump.

The former South Carolina congressman’s ouster is not imminent, according to those familiar with his standing with the president, but he has drawn the ire of Trump’s allies.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump did not respond to shouted questions about his chief of staff’s fate during a Cabinet meeting on Monday. But Mulvaney got a warm reception during a senior staff meeting on Monday morning and sources say many inside the White House are still satisfied with him.

According to the report, Mulvaney’s recent public statements have included comments some find frustrating as they “put the White House and its Republican allies in a difficult position in recent days.”

Mulvaney started a press conference to announce that next year’s G-7 summit would be hosted in the United States at Trump’s resort in Doral, Florida.

Over the course of the Q&A, he insinuated that “Trump withheld foreign aid from Ukraine to entice the eastern European government to assist with an investigation into foreign interference in 2016,” McClatchy reports.

After a question about a “quid pro quo” to convince Ukraine to investigate a hack into the Democratic National Committee server during the 2016 election, Mulvaney said, “Absolutely. No question about that. But that’s it. And that’s why we held up the money.”

“We do that all the time with foreign policy,” he later added.

“I have news for everybody: Get over it,” Mulvaney said. “There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy.”

Mulvaney later clarified his remarks, denying the existence of any quid pro quo with Ukraine.

In addition to “frustration” with his comments, Mulvaney and White House counsel Pat Cipollone are rumored to be feuding.
