Mark Randall Meadows (born July 28, 1959) was a supporter of Ted Cruz for president and yet somehow finessed himself to become the White House Chief of Staff for President Donald Trump, beginning March 6, 2020. He was previously a U.S. Representative from North Carolina's 11th congressional district, which he resigned before completing his final term.

The pro-Cruz Meadows' tenure as Chief of Staff to Trump has been notable for causing Trump's approval ratings and reelection chances to plummet. Meadows has interfered with Trump opening up access to hydroxychloroquine to defeat the Wuhan virus, and has apparently urged Trump to shut down TikTok which is used by 80 million Americans.

Early life and education

Meadows was born on July 28, 1959 in Verdun, France in a United States Army hospital. He is a graduate from the University of South Florida.

United States House of Representatives

Meadows is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a group of strong conservatives in the U.S. House. He offered a motion to vacate the chair held by Speaker John Boehner citing no-confidence.[1] Boehner was not able to secure enough Republican votes and announced his resignation in October 2015. Meadows is a strong supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump's agenda.[2]
