USA – Lundi 21/10/2019 – “Ils / Elles bougent – energiesdelamer.eu. President says he knows successor as incumbent leaves role after three years.

US President Donald Trump said he will announce a new energy secretary soon after current postholder Rick Perry said he’ll leave later this year.

Trump said he already has a successor in mind for Perry, who resigned after three years in the role.

The US President said Perry had been in the job for “a long time” and the moment is right for a change, but media reports pointed to Rick Perry being dragged into the row over alleged pressure by Trump on the government of Ukraine.
