Reports: VA Head Shulkin & National Security Adviser McMaster May Be Ousted Soon

HeadlineMar 14, 2018

There is now speculation that President Trump will soon oust Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and replace him with Energy Secretary Rick Perry. Shulkin has been facing criticism for various ethics violations, including using taxpayer money to pay for his wife’s airfare during a trip to Europe last summer. And there’s also speculation that Trump may soon oust National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. All this comes as Trump claimed at the White House Tuesday that he’s “very close to having the Cabinet [he wants].”

President Donald Trump: “I’ve gotten to know a lot of people very well over the last year, and I’m really at a point where we’re getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want.”
