It appears the 'bromance' between President Donald Trump and Mick Mulvaney is winding down.
According to Politico, Trump in recent weeks has been expressing greater frustration than usual at his acting chief of staff.
The president has asked people in recent months what kind of leadership they think Mulvaney is offering and the value he is adding.
It's often a sign the president is souring on a staffer.
Trump is searching for his third chief of staff in less than two-and-a-half years.
