WASHINGTON — Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James applauded President Donald Trump on his choice of Russ Vought to serve as director of the Office of Management and Budget. Vought, a former vice president of Heritage Action for America, is currently serving as OMB’s acting director.
Russ is and will always be part of the Heritage family. We are proud of him and grateful to the President for nominating a staunch conservative like Russ.
While a Capitol Hill staffer, Russ served as an example to countless young conservatives on how to best advise members of Congress to stick to their principles.
At Heritage Action, he pioneered new forms of grassroots activism, and connected and inspired tens of thousands of the conservative movement’s best and brightest activists.
Since joining OMB, Russ has overseen the delivery of four of the most conservative presidential budgets to date. He has been an integral part of an administration that has fought fearlessly for life and liberty.
