President Donald Trump names Mark Meadows as his new chief of staff, replacing Mick Mulvaney. The shift to Meadows, a retiring North Carolina congressman, follows Trump's acquittal in his Senate impeachment trial and a recent push to appoint highly loyal associates to top jobs and push out others. Meadows replaces Mulvaney, who had served as acting chief of staff. Mulvaney will become an envoy to Northern Ireland. Ref. USAToday.

From what I've heard and watched he seems to have a very close relation with the president before he became Chief of Staff, it reminds me how some political parties (In general) would always go for the ones who are the most friendly and loyal in a diplomatic way to their group for various appointments and roles.
