Washington, DC - The Senate, in a rare bipartisan vote, confirmed President Trump's nomination to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, David Shulkin, 100 - 0. Shulkin is one of the few holdovers from the Obama administration to find a place in the new Trump administration.

Shulkin is a physician by training and a former healthcare executive, having served as the President and CEO of the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. He also previously served as the Chief Medical Officer of the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
