In 2006, Winfree took a job at The Heritage Foundation, where he researched issues of economic mobility and coauthored a book on that topic published by the Pew Charitable Trusts.[4][5]

Between 2011 and 2015, Winfree was director of income security at the Senate Budget Committee. In this capacity, he contributed greatly to implementing deficit-neutral risk corridor legislation in the Affordable Care Act.[6]

In 2015, Winfree returned to The Heritage Foundation, serving as Director of the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies, the Center for Data Analysis, as well as becoming the inaugural Richard F. Aster Fellow. His research there focused on public finance, economic modeling, and the history of economic thought.[3] In this capacity, he was lead-authoring the 165-page "Blueprint for Balance" proposal, which later became an important idea-giver[7] for the Trump transition team, of which Winfree eventually became a part of.[8]

During the 2016 Presidential transition, Winfree worked alongside Linda M. Springer, a member of the George W. Bush administration,[9] looking forward to achieve a more direct political impact.[8] In November 2016, he stated that President-elect Trump was highly interested in questions of domestic policy.[10]

Winfree became the Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, the Deputy Director of the Domestic Policy Council, and the Director of Budget Policy in January 2017.[11] As Chair of the Deputies Committee, Winfree coordinated all domestic policy at the Deputy Secretary level within the administration and the interagency policy coordination process.[12] Winfree and former Representative OMB Director, Mick Mulvaney, were lead authors of the administration’s budget proposition.[13]

Winfree also authored and lead the administration of the President’s Executive Order number 13781, with the objective of establishing "A Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch."[14] Winfree was also the author of the Executive Order number 13828 on "Reducing poverty in America by promoting opportunity and economic mobility."[1]

Paul Winfree left the White House and returned to Heritage at the end of 2017, in a move which was anticipated by media and policy experts in Washington,[15] who saw him as well as several other early members of the Trump administration leave after one year in office.[16] Paul Winfree also was founder and president of N58 Policy Research,[17] a firm that provided analytical research and strategy for decision makers in matters of public policy.[12]


Winfree has published a number of papers on fiscal policy and public finance. He is currently finishing a book on the history of the U.S. budget process.[18]

Winfree has published numerous articles in The Hill and his research was featured in publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Congressional Quarterly, Investor's Business Daily, and Morning Consult.[3]

Personal background

Winfree is from Williamsburg, Virginia, where he once worked as a cooper's apprentice at the colonial town's historical district.[4] He is married and has two sons.[15]
