President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he would nominate Admiral Ronny Jackson, the presidential physician, to be the next secretary of veterans affairs, ousting embattled leader David Shulkin.
"I am pleased to announce that I intend to nominate highly respected Admiral Ronny L. Jackson, MD, as the new Secretary of Veterans Affairs," Trump wrote on Twitter. "In the interim, Hon. Robert Wilkie of DOD will serve as Acting Secretary. I am thankful for Dr. David Shulkin’s service to our country and to our GREAT VETERANS!"
