Delegate Bordallo on firing of VA's Dr. David Shulkin

 Rear Admiral Jackson

 

Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo issued the following statement on President Trump’s removal of David Shulkin as the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. President Trump also announced via Twitter that he will nominate his presidential physician, Adm. Ronny Jackson, to be the next VA Secretary.

 

“Our veterans face serious challenges, and the VA needs stable and consistent leadership to address them. While we have made some progress here on Guam, local veterans continue to struggle with consistent access to health care, timely processing of benefits claims, and recognition of our unique challenges because of our geographic location. Guam veterans are also waiting for solutions to assertions of Agent Orange and radiation exposure from past wars. I continue working in Congress to advance these issues, and I will push for the new VA leadership to work ardently within the Trump Administration to prioritize our challenges.”
