Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney this week braced Trump donors for what he hopes will be only a “moderate and short” recession. Three-quarters of business economists expect a recession by the end of 2021. https://t.co/UknrEZmysw

They’d throw him off the GOP Titanic for this, but Mulvaney’s the Acting Head of Everything They’ve Still Got… and possibly the only one who’s figured out how to work the light switches in the Oval Office.
He told 50 people who would not be impacted by the recession.
