‘It’s a circus’: Veterans advocate tells CNN he wouldn’t be shocked if Trump appointed Kanye to run the VA

0

When asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo about Trump possibly choosing Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) to run the VA, Rieckhoff said that the Florida congressman would be an intriguing choice,

while also saying that he has little faith at the moment that Trump would make a good choice after the Ronny Jackson fiasco.

“The bottom line right now is, this has been a rotation of names,” Rieckhoff told Cuomo. “I mean, the guy who was leading our office pool last week was Kanye!”

“We don’t know who it’s going to be!” he said. “It’s become a circus, and that’s bad for veterans. Veterans are walking into the VA hospital right now, and next to President Trump there’s normally a picture of the VA secretary — there’s nobody. There’s nobody! We don’t have a leader!”
