Donald Trump Officially Nominates White House Doctor as VA Secretary
Amid all the Michael Cohen/Sean Hannity/Stormy Daniels uproar today, Donald Trump officially nominated his personal White House physician Dr. Ronny L. Jackson to replace the fired David Shulkin as Secretary of Veterans Affairs. The nom has been sent to the Senate.
Navy Rear Admiral Jackson, who has no political experience, was hurled into the national consciousness in January when he fronted a nearly hourlong White House news conference to vouch for Trump’s health. Some cable news pundits have cited sources as saying Jackson might face a difficult Senate confirmation hearing.
