Donald Trump’s Labor Secretary Pick Pulls Out

Donald Trump’s nominee for labor secretary abruptly withdrew his nomination after concerns about his business and personal life.

Still reeling from the abrupt resignation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the White House must now find a replacement for the controversial Labour Department candidate Andrew Puzder.

Mr Puzder, a fast food chain CEO, has faced allegations of domestic abuse and of mistreating his workers, several of whom testified against him last month before the Senate.

Puzder said in a statement provided to The Associated Press that he was “honoured to have been considered by President Donald Trump to lead the Department of Labor and put America’s workers and businesses back on a path to sustainable prosperity.”
