Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin Says He Was Fired After Opposing Privatization of VA Healthcare:

(WASHINGTON) — Former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin is blaming his sudden ouster from the Trump administration on “political forces” that he says are bent on privatizing the agency and putting “companies with profits” over veterans’ care.

Shulkin was the lone Obama administration holdover serving in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet. In a New York Times, op-ed, he blasts a “toxic” and “subversive” environment in Washington that made it impossible for him to lead.

Trump fired Shulkin with a tweet late Wednesday.
