Donald Trump’s new White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows appears to be having a tough time adjusting to the hecticness of the Trump administration.
According to Maggie Haberman of the New York Times, Meadows has been “overwhelmed” by how the White House is being run.
According to administration officials speaking to the Times, Meadows has been “overwhelmed at times by a permanent culture at the White House that revolves around the president’s moods.” According to Haberman, “no matter who serves as chief of staff, the lack of formal processes and the constant infighting are unavoidable facts of life for those working for Mr. Trump.”
Meadows has reportedly cried while meeting with White House staff on at least two occasions.
“On both occasions, Mr. Meadows was discussing staffing changes, according to the people briefed on the events,” Haberman writes. “A White House spokesman declined to comment on either meeting. A person close to Mr. Kushner said he denied that any such episode involving him ever took place.”
