BREAKING: President Trump Has Announced a New Nominee For VA Secretary

President Trump announced Friday he will promote Robert Wilkie to serve as the next Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Wilkie is currently the VA acting director and took over in March when VA Secretary David Shulkin was fired.

"He [Wilkie] doesn’t know this yet,” Trump said during a White House event on prison reform. “I’m sorry that I ruined the surprise.”

Wilkie's nomination comes three weeks after former VA nominee and longtime White House Doctor Ronny Jackson withdrew his name from consideration.

Yesterday Wilkie met with President Trump at the White House.
