Former chief of staff John Kelly has been gone for a little over one month and already new "acting" chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is reportedly hacking off the president.

Trump berated Mulvaney during the January 4 meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer after Mulvaney attempted to find a middle ground with the Dems, according to Axios. - Trump travels to the US-Mexico border as part of his all-out offensive to build a wall, a day after he stormed out of negotiations when Democratic opponents refused to agree to fund the project in exchange for an end to a painful government shutdown.

The meeting, which took place on January 4 in the White House Situation Room, consisted of Trump restating his demand for $5.7 in funding to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

In response, Trump reportedly cut Mulvaney off and scolded, "You just fucked it all up, Mick".

Furthermore, in 2016, The State, a SC newspaper, reported that in the run-up to Election Day, Mulvaney said he was supporting Trump "despite the fact that I think he's a bad human being".

Paraphrasing comments made by Mulvaney, the source said, 'If Dems weren't OK with $5.7 [billion] and the President wasn't OK with $1.3 [billion].

'It was kind of weird, ' the source said of the comment.

While the official who spoke to Axios contended that Mulvaney had a positive rapport with the president, a 2015 radio interview resurfaced by CNN's KFile showed that Mulvaney once called Trump's position on the wall "absurd and nearly childish".

Another source said Trump seemed as though he was irritated at Mulvaney's negotiating style.
