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. Meadows then ineptly got Trump to endorse a replacement candidate who was subsequently defeated in a landslide by the youthful conservative Madison Cawthorn.
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 interfered with Trump opening up access to hydroxychloroquine to defeat the Wuhan virus, and apparently urged Trump to shut down TikTok which is used by 80 million Americans.
Caving into Faucism throughout 2020, Meadows sided with socialist Anthony Fauci and blocked efforts by Peter Navarro to rein in Fauci. The result of Meadows allowing the unelected Fauci to take control was disastrous for the Nation.
According to Mark Milley, Meadows was among the Trump staffers who was aware of his January 8, 2021 phone call to Chinese general Li Zuocheng (in which Milley stated that he would inform the CCP in the event of a pre-emptive attack by the United States). If this statement is true, then Meadows essentially was aware of a seditious, borderline treasonous act by a high-ranking general, and did nothing to inform President Trump about that act.
