Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Trump Taps Rep. Mark Meadows as New Chief of Staff

HeadlineMar 09, 2020

President Trump announced he is replacing acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney with North Carolina Congressmember Mark Meadows. Meadows, a staunch Trump ally, will be Trump’s fourth chief of staff in just over three years. He previously led the House Freedom Caucus and has promoted the racist “birther” conspiracy theory about President Obama.

In other White House staffing news, Adam Kennedy, deputy communications director who has been with the administration since day one, is expected to leave his position later this week. He will reportedly be replaced by Julia Hahn, a former Breitbart writer.
