President Donald Trump will name Florida attorney Alexander Acosta his second nominee to be Labor Secretary on Thursday, after his first pick, Andrew Puzder lost the support of GOP senators.
"He has had a tremendous career", Trump said Thursday during a White House briefing.
"After careful consideration and discussions with my family, I am withdrawing my nomination for Secretary of Labor", Puzder said in a statement. He had later misled Vice President Mike Pence about the conversations. "I know Alex Acosta well, and he is a phenomenal choice to lead the Department of Labor", Rubio said. "We believe he's the right American for the position".
Andy Puzder, the controversial fast-food executive who dropped his bid to become US labor secretary on Wednesday, will return to his job running the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's chains.
His last nominee, Andrew Puzder, withdrew on Wednesday, a day before he was scheduled to appear at a confirmation hearing. According to theMiami Herald, Acosta "not only boasts stellar conservative credentials but is recognized as a political pragmatist". "They would work out the finances".
After he finished at Harvard Law School, Acosta clerked for Samuel Alito, who was then an appeals court judge and was eventually appointed to the Supreme Court.
Acosta was a member of the National Labor Relations Board from 2002 to 2003 where he authored more than 125 opinions.
The eyebrow-raising issue is that as head of the civil-rights division of the Justice Department in the Bush administration, he was suspected of complicity in the overt politicization of hiring decisions.
Acosta, the only son of Cuban immigrants, gradually reconnected with Miami and cultivated strong relationships in the legal and law enforcement community to build up the USA attorney's office in his image.
