As stated by Chairman of the Board of the international public movement Change the World Together Aleksey Muratov, Mulvaney is widely known as cryptocurrency and blockchain technology advocate.

As stated by Chairman of the Board of the International Public Movement Change the World Together Aleksey Muratov, Mulvaney is widely known as cryptocurrency and blockchain technology advocate.

It should be noted that one of the functions of OMB is to prepare an annual federal budget for submission to Congress and to monitor its implementation if adopted.

 

According to Aleksey Muratov, the Mulvaney’s appointment to this position was supported by the majority of US senators, although, some fellow party members openly opposed his candidature. ʺIn particular, Republican and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services John McCain stated that Mulvaney had previously used ʺreckless budget strategiesʺ. Also, some Republicans are concerned that Mulvaney may limit the allocation of funds for military programmes. Mulvaney, in his turn, stated during the Senate hearings that he remained a proponent of raising the retirement age for social security programmes and the revision of the federal health insurance programme Medicare,ʺ Chairman of the Board of CWT Aleksey Muratov said.

In Aleksey Muratov’s view, Mick Mulvaney is a well-known cryptocurrency advocate in the US. ʺIn September 2016, Mulvaney became one of the founders of the “Blockchain faction”, a parliamentary group which efforts are focused on the promotion of laws and regulations designed to develop cryptocurrency and blockchain applications. Jared Polis is a co-organizer of the association with whom Mulvaney has been working since 2014. In addition, his business partners include Jerry Brito, the executive director of Coin Center, a non-profit organization, which is known for its active efforts to promote the interests of the cryptocurrency industry," he stated.

According to Chairman of the Board of CWT, this assignment emphasizes Trump's sequence of actions. ʺThe Appointment of Mick Mulvaney as Director of Office of Management and Budget of the United States confirms Donald Trump’s words that he will not blindly support the interests of the world's corporations and elites and his plan is to bring America back to the ordinary Americans,ʺ he noted.

Aleksey Muratov also reported that the activists of CWT are planning to hold new rallies near the US embassies in Ukraine, Russia and India in March. ʺI remind you that our activists held rallies in support of Donald Trump in December. A resolution sent to the representatives of diplomatic mission was signed back then. It has been three months and the leader of Change the World Together intend to remind the President of United States of his election promises such as to deal with the financial elites and the Federal Reserve System. We promise to give him all possible support. We will post a more detailed information about rallies on our official website a bit later,ʺ Chairman of the Board of Change the World Together promised.
