Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has a message for those concerned that President Donald Trump held up military aid to Ukraine until it moved to investigate a conspiracy involving the 2016 U.S election — “Get over it.”
Speaking with reporters Thursday at the White House, Mulvaney acknowledged Trump held up Ukraine aid partly for political reasons.
“Get over it,” he said. “There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy.”
“That is going to happen,” he added. “Elections have consequences.”
