White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney's stock is reportedly on the rise in the Trump administration.

Politico reported Tuesday the Office of Management and Budget director's influence in the White House is rising after reports of tension between top administration officials.


White House chief of staff Reince Priebus reportedly arranged a recent meeting between chief strategist Stephen Bannon and senior adviser Jared Kushner to sooth tensions between the two.

Bannon and Kushner, who is also Trump's son-in-law, have reportedly clashed over policy differences.

President Trump also reportedly told Bannon and Kushner to "work this out" amid recurring disagreements between the pair.

Trump last week removed Bannon from his role on the National Security Council.

Mulvaney, a former congressman from South Carolina, said last month after the GOP's ObamaCare repeal bill was pulled from the House floor that he has no idea why he couldn't get his former colleagues on the conservative House Freedom Caucus to support it.

He said there's "probably plenty of blame to go around" for the bill's failure.
