“This is really important to the President, ” Mulvaney said when asked why Trump will be able to do what past chairmen have failed to accomplish. “I can tell you that this is a big part of draining the swamp. … Really, what you are talking about doing is restructuring Washington, DC, and that is how you drain the swamp.”
