President-elect Donald Trump to nominate David Shulkin to head Veterans Affairs

President-elect Donald Trump plans to nominate David Shulkin as secretary of veterans affairs, he announced Wednesday at his first press conference in six months. Shulkin is currently serving as the undersecretary of health for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, a position to which he was nominated by President Obama in 2015.

Trump said that his team interviewed more than 100 people for the position. He has just one Cabinet position left to name, the head of the Department of Agriculture.
