President Donald Trump to announce his pick for labor secretary

- So far, no word from the White House on a new nominee for labor secretary following the withdrawal of fast-food executive Andrew Puzder.

Senate Republicans were troubled by Puzder's acknowledgement that he had not paid taxes on a former housekeeper until after President Donald Trump nominated him to the Cabinet.

Thursday afternoon President Trump is expected to announce a new nominee for Labor Secretary at a press conference in the White House. 

According to a White House official President Trump will select law school dean Alexander Acosta as his nominee for Secretary of Labor.
