Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “President Donald Trump Announces New Energy Secretary Pick”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump announced Friday he would nominate Dan Brouillette to be the next secretary of the Department of Energy, following the departure of Rick Perry.

“I want to thank Secretary of Energy Rick Perry for the outstanding job he has done. He will be leaving at the end of the year to pursue other interests. Rick was a great Governor of Texas and a great Secretary of Energy,” Trump tweeted Friday. “He is also my friend! At the same time, I am pleased to nominate Deputy Secretary Dan Brouillette to be the new Secretary of Energy. Dan’s experience in the sector is unparalleled. A total professional, I have no doubt that Dan will do a great job!”

There was mounting speculation that Perry, one of the longest-serving members of Trump’s cabinet, would be leaving the administration. The Texas Republican reportedly handed in his resignation Thursday and is expected to serve for the remainder of 2019.

Perry, a former Texas governor, is leaving the Trump administration while he’s become more engulfed if the president’s Ukraine scandal.
