Following the August resignation of now former Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price, for improper use of taxpayer funds for travel, the Trump Administration has been working to bring forth a nominee that will easily garner support from Republicans and will work within the department to ensure the implementation of a new healthcare bill when it is passed.
In what is becoming his signature way of announcing news, President Trump tweeted out the nomination earlier this week.
Happy to announce, I am nominating Alex Azar to be the next HHS Secretary. He will be a star for better healthcare and lower drug prices!
