The President is choosing his personal physician Admiral Ronny L. Jackson to take over the top spot.
This after the President announced Shulkin’s departure on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon thanking Shulkin for his service to the country and the nation’s veterans.
Shulkin’s exit has been rumored for months with some people criticizing the Obama-era hold-over’s management of the embattled VA.
Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Robert Wilkie will be in charge as the Interim VA Secretary.
