Trump se­lect­ing Shana­han for de­fense sec­re­tary

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will nom­i­nate Pa­trick Shana­han to be de­fense sec­re­tary, choos­ing a for­mer aero­space ex­ec­u­tive who has run the Pentagon since De­cem­ber, the White House said Thurs­day.

Sarah Huck­abee San­ders, the White House press sec­re­tary, an­nounced the plan in a tweet, say­ing Shana­han “has proven over the last sev­eral months that he is be­yond qual­i­fied to lead the De­part­ment of De­fense.” Shana­han has been more sup­port­ive of Trump’s pri­or­i­ties than James N. Mat­tis, who re­signed as Pentagon chief late last year.
