Former Veterans Affairs secretary David Shulkin, who was sacked Wednesday and promptly replaced by Donald Trump's doctor, lit into the Trump administration in a New York Times op-ed Thursday, claiming that he was pushed out of VA leadership because he resisted efforts to privatize the health care of military veterans.
President TrumpfiredDavid Shulkin late Wednesday as his secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Trump, in a statement, called Shulkin's replacement, Dr. Ronny Jackson "highly trained and qualified" and said that, as a service member himself, Jackson "has seen firsthand the tremendous sacrifice our veterans make and has a deep appreciation for the debt our great country owes them". "In the interim, Hon".
Dr. Ronny Jackson is an admiral in the United States Navy (joined in 1995), and he has served as the Physician to the President for Presidents Obama and Trump.
"The private sector, already struggling to provide adequate access to care in many communities, is ill-prepared to handle the number and complexity of patients that would come from closing or downsizing V.A. hospitals and clinics, particularly when it involves the mental health needs of people scarred by the horrors of war", Shulkin wrote, adding that the department's understanding of veterans' needs and its research "cannot be easily replicated in the private sector".
Shulkin, the lone Obama administration holdover serving in President Donald Trump's Cabinet, blasted a "toxic" and "subversive" environment in Washington that made it impossible for him to lead. The Inspector General's report criticized Mr. Shulkin for the expenses on the trip, including improperly accepting those tickets. Shulkin also blamed internal drama at the agency on a half-dozen or so rebellious political appointees, insisting he had White House backing to fire them.
But Shulkin claims those successes have only emboldened those in the Trump administration who aim for privatizing the VA health system.

"Privatization leading to the dismantling of the department's extensive health care system is a awful idea".
While more details of the Cerner EHR contract have emerged, the contract has not yet been signed. "The Cerner Corporation has been extraordinary in working with us to respond to that".
Shulkin's name was scrubbed from the Department of Veterans Affairs website soon after.
However, Shulkin's abrupt departure from the VA introduces an element of uncertainty into ongoing contract negotiations with Cerner, given his hands-on approach to the EHR modernization program. Jackson's stock with Trump rose after he pronounced in January that the 71-year-old president was in "excellent" health.
"I am deeply concerned about the nominee", said AMVETS Executive Director Joe Chenelly in a written statement. Shulkin demurred from pointing a finger squarely at President Trump but described a VA riddled with political pressure and conflict. "The president has said many times before he's always looking to create a level playing field for all businesses, and this is no different. And any lack of clarity at the VA about its direction and leadership stymies the hard-fought progress that's been made so far".
