Trump's Secretary of the Interior is Leaving
Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke will step down at the end of the year President Trump has confirmed.

According to Fox News:

President Trump announced Saturday that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will be stepping down from his post at the end of the year.

“Secretary of the Interior @RyanZinke will be leaving the Administration at the end of the year after having served for a period of almost two years,” he tweeted. “Ryan has accomplished much during his tenure and I want to thank him for his service to our Nation.”


Trump added that he would announce Zinke’s replacement by the end of next week.


Bloomberg News, which first reported Zinke’s resignation, reported that candidates who could replace him could include David Bernhardt, Zinke's deputy, as well as former Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, and former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Zinke previously served as a Navy seal and a congressman before taking the post. He has continuously been hampered with ethics complaints during his term.
