President Obama picked the most popular secretary in Trumps cabinet

Donald Trump’s fixation on President Barack Obama is no secret.

Whether desperately retweeting unscientific Twitter polls that say Trump is a better president; alienating European allies, who are all too aware that Trump’s reckless actions on foreign policy are “driven by an obsession with unravelling” Obama’s work; or wasting taxpayer money to try to prove that his own inauguration crowd was larger than Obama’s (spoiler alert: it wasn’t), Trump’s jealousy of his predecessor is clear.

At times painfully so, like when it drives him to take aim at the lowered teen pregnancy rate under the Obama administration or to just rampage through Obama’s legacy like a bull in a china shop.

But one esteemed element of that legacy is still firmly in place, within the White House itself, no less.

As Politico notes, “Trump’s most popular cabinet secretary” was actually chosen by Obama.

David Shulkin, the secretary of Veterans Affairs, was originally nominated to a different position within that department by Obama in 2015. In January 2017, on the advice of U.S. Ambassador to Israel David M. Friedman, Trump nominated Shulkin to the top position at the VA.
