Trump denies report he’s testing Conway, Mnuchin as Mulvaney replacements

President Donald Trump on Tuesday night denied a report that he has been considering White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin as possible replacements for Mick Mulvaney as his top aide in the West Wing.

“Wrong, never even discussed this with Kellyanne Conway or Steve Mnuchin. Just more Fake News!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Bloomberg reported Tuesday afternoon that Trump has been “privately testing” various candidates to take over for Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff — floating Conway, Mnuchin and deputy chief of staff Chris Liddell as potential successors in recent weeks.
