Trump Picks Mulvaney To Be White House Budget Director

Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., speaks during the bipartisan news conference outside of the Capitol to unveil 'a major proposal aimed at modernizing America's regulatory system to reduce compliance costs, encourage growth and innovation, and improve national competitiveness' on Tuesday, May 20, 2014.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Dec 17 (Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said on Saturday he has chosen U.S. Representative Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina to be his White House budget director, turning to a fiscal conservative to help pursue his policy agenda.

The nomination to be director of the White House Office of Budget and Management will require Senate confirmation.

Mulvaney, 49, was an outspoken critic of former House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid opposition from fellow Republicans who were members of the House Freedom Caucus.
