BREAKING: David Shulkin OUT as VA Secretary

President Trump made the announcement on Twitter.

Trump tweeted: I am pleased to announce that I intend to nominate highly respected Admiral Ronny L. Jackson, MD, as the new Secretary of Veterans Affairs….

Part two ….In the interim, Hon. Robert Wilkie of DOD will serve as Acting Secretary. I am thankful for Dr. David Shulkin’s service to our country and to our GREAT VETERANS!

White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson is a United States Navy Admiral who was hired by Obama in 2013.

Dr. Jackson gave President Trump a clean bill of health recently and raved about Trump’s incredible genes and excellent cognitive health.

The Gateway Pundit’s DC Bureau, Lucian Wintrich reported Shulkin was on his way out two weeks ago:

When asked further about VA Secretary Shulkin, it seems that his failures and lavish use of taxpayer money for a European vacation is what finally set the president off:

“He was an Obama appointee, he had bipartisan support but then he got caught. Trump has this combination thing – if you’re embattled in scandal and failing him then you’re gone. Shulkin was not doing his job well and he was f***ing up generally.”
