New Secretary’s Challenge

The US Senate confirmed attorney Robert Wilkie on Monday to become the next Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs with a vote of 86 to 9.

Wilkie, a veteran with deep ties to DOD and the Senate is now responsible for correcting course to the most dysfunctional agency in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet. “Under his leadership, I have no doubt that the Department of Veterans Affairs will continue to make strides in honoring and protecting the heroic men and women who have served our Nation with distinction,” said President Trump.
