White House: Trump has confidence in VA, EPA chiefs
The White House indicated Tuesday that President Trump has confidence in his Veterans Affairs secretary and Environmental Protection Agency director despite allegations of travel abuses.
“I have no reason to believe otherwise,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters when asked if Trump still has confidence in VA Secretary David Shulkin and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.
“As we have said many times before, if somebody doesn’t have the confidence of the president, you will know.”
An inspector general report found that Shulkin improperly used taxpayer dollars for a trip to Europe last year and Pruitt has come under scrutiny for flying first-class while on official business.
