President Donald Trump may have thought he was done making top appointments, but in recent days he has been forced to find a new national security adviser and a new labor secretary.
Just two days after Michael Flynn resigned as national security adviser, Trump’s nominee for secretary of labor, Andrew Puzder, withdrew his name from consideration.
But Trump wasted no time in finding a replacement for Puzder, who had not been confirmed by the Senate before stepping down.
On Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2017, Trump announced the nomination of R. Alexander Acosta, the dean of the Florida International University College of Law in Miami.
R. Alexander Acosta: Labor secretary
Keith Kellogg: Acting national security adviser
Rod Rosenstein: Deputy attorney general
Philip Bilden: Navy secretary
Maureen Ohlhausen: Acting chair of Federal Trade Commission
James Comey: FBI director
Heather Wilson: Air Force secretary
Woody Johnson: Ambassador to the United Kingdom
Sonny Perdue: Secretary of agriculture
David Shulkin: Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Jared Kushner: Senior adviser to the president
Dan Coats: Director of national intelligence
Katie Walsh: Deputy chief of staff
