Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) is leaving Congress to help out President Donald Trump.


One of Trump's top allies in the House will not seek re-election and instead take on an as yet undefined role assisting the president, reported Politico.

The North Carolina Republican has been one of the most conservative members of Congress since he was first elected in 2013, and he has been a self-described "warrior for the president" since Trump's election three years later.
