President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for director of the Office of Management and Budget is House Representative Mick Mulvaney from South Carolina. He’s a deficit hawk who came into office with many other Tea Party candidates back in 2010. He has a long history of budget cutting, even embracing the term “shutdown caucus” because of his willingness to shutter the government in 2013 over debt levels. If confirmed, he’ll be faced with plenty of budget related problems, and some of them possibly created by the very man who appointed him. 

You can explore the extensive business and industry ties of all of Trump’s cabinet picks, here.
