According to an exclusive from Axios Donald Trump is considering Chairman of the far-right Freedom Caucus, Mark Meadows for his Cheif of Staff.
Trumphas asked confidants what they think about the idea of installing Rep. Mark Meadows, the chairman of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus, as John Kelly’s permanent replacement, according to these three sources. Trump has also mentioned three other candidates besides Meadows, according to a source with direct knowledge. I don’t yet have their names.

Trump is yet to announce who will be his Chief of Staff
I am in the process of interviewing some really great people for the position of White House Chief of Staff. Fake News has been saying with certainty it was Nick Ayers, a spectacular person who will always be with our #MAGA agenda. I will be making a decision soon!— Donald J.
