White House Denies Rumors of VA Secretary’s Dismissal
Trump administration officials and others on Wednesday tampered down rumors of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin’s imminent dismissal.
The president has reportedly been itching to fire him, but Shulkin is said to have broad support from GOP lawmakers and veterans.
Agency spokesman Curt Cashour said in a written statement Wednesday, "There are no personnel changes to announce at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
President Trump has made clear that he expects the department’s sole focus to be on providing quality care to America’s veterans who have sacrificed to keep this country free and safe.”
