Trump reportedly berated Mick Mulvaney in front of Schumer and Pelosi

President Donald Trump humiliated his new White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, in front of Congressional leaders during talks to end the government shutdown, it was reported on Sunday.

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.

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".

Axios reported that it confirmed the President's comments from another source who was in the room, who said Trump seemed to be annoyed at Mulvaney's style of negotiating.

A White House official who spoke to Axios did not deny Trump's language, but said the exchange was not heated.

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].

That reportedly sent the president into a fit, as he cut off Mulvaney, telling him, "You just fucked it all up, Mick".

"You just fu-ed it all up, Mick", Trump told Mulvaney, according to the site.

Democrats have repeatedly poked at the former GOP congressman during negotiations, suggesting that he likes government shutdowns, the source said, because of his fiscal conservative background.
