Trump Considers Ousting Veterans Affairs Chief

Trump met with Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Monday, and multiple outlets are reporting the president is considering Perry to replace Shulkin.

U.S. President Donald Trump is interviewed by Fox and Friends co-host Pete Hegseth at the White House in Washington, U.S. April 6, 2017.

Shulkin is accused of being one of the most corrupt officials under the Trump administration, according to Vanity Fair.

But what the renewable energy future holds for the South Asian giant will be critical for the world, climate change experts say. Progress is clearly happening quickly: During 2017 alone, India doubled its installed solar capacity from 10 GW to 20 GW.

Last month, Missal issued a scathing report charging that Shulkin wrongly charged the $4,132 airfare for his wife on a trip to Denmark and London last July, and also accepted free tickets to the Wimbledon tennis tournament.

VA Secretary David Shulkin has come under scrutiny for a recent and damning IG report. The veterans affairs post was among the slots Trump eyed for him before picking him for the Energy Department - one of three that Perry vowed to abolish during his 2012 presidential run, and the one whose name eluded him during an "oops" moment at a 2011 debate. That person said Mr. Perry's wasn't the.

Possible replacements for Energy Secretary show Trump also is unfamiliar with the responsibilities of the Energy Secretary. And all that happened amid an internal push to oust Shulkin by members of the Veterans Affairs Department. He was the only holdover from the previous administration after Trump tapped him as the new VA secretary. His impressive start, however, now seems to be in the distant past as controversies have hounded his leadership. Trump said during a press conference early last week that he likes "conflict" and having "having two people with different points of view" go head-to-head in front of him, adding that it helps him make decisions.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke also faced criticism after it was revealed that he is spending $139,000 of taxpayers' money to replace the doors in his office.

However, Kelly was reportedly blindsided when Shulkin later spoke with The New York Times about the issues within the VA.

Trump has talked about firing Shulkin but was still weighing the question Tuesday, the people said.
