John Michael Mulvaney (; born July 21, 1967) is an American politician in the Republican Party and Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). He was nominated as OMB Director by incoming President Donald Trump in December 2016 and confirmed by Senate vote (51–49) on February 16, 2017. Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010, he was the first Republican since 1883 to represent South Carolina's 5th congressional district where he served until his confirmation as OMB Director in 2017. Mulvaney served in the South Carolina General Assembly from 2007–2011, first in the State House of Representatives and then the State Senate. Mulvaney, previously a stalwart deficit hawk, became a proponent of large federal deficits after his appointment to the Trump administration.

Trump appointed Mulvaney to serve as Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act (FVRA), which allows for the president to appoint an interim replacement without Senate confirmation. However, a dispute has arisen over whether Mulvaney can be so-named under the FVRA or whether a provision of the Dodd-Frank Act controls, which would make the deputy director, currently Leandra English, acting director of the CFPB instead. This dispute is ongoing. The Senate may also resolve the dispute by confirming a permanent replacement once nominated by the President. On November 28, 2017, a federal judge ruled in Trump's favor to allow Mulvaney to serve as CFPB Acting Director.
