(CNN) -- President Donald Trump announced Friday that he is nominating Robert Wilkie to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, three weeks after his previous nominee withdrew from the confirmation process. Wilkie is currently the undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, but has been serving as the VA's acting secretary since the President fired VA Secretary David Shulkin in late March.
