WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump still supports Anthony Tata, his pick for undersecretary of defense for policy, despite the abrupt cancellation of Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearing for the divisive nominee, the White House said on Friday.
“I have no personnel announcements other [than] to say that the President still supports him,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh Mcenany said when asked about whether Trump would appoint Tata in an acting role, bypassing Congress to give him a temporary post.
