washington - The personal doctor of US President Donald Trump will be the new Minister for Veterans Affairs. Ronny Jackson replaces David Shulkin, who has to clear the field.
Trump announces on Twitter that he is going to nominate Jackson for the liberated minister post. He also thanks Shulkin for his proven services for the country and the veterans.
According to employees of the White House, who want to remain anonymous, Shulkin has become an uncertain factor because of persistent rumors about his future. Among other things, he received criticism because during a business trip to Europe, he was mainly interested in tourist trips and shopping.
Shulkin comes on a long list of names that had to clear the field within the Trump government.
