President Donald Trump has selected lawyer Eugene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to be his new labor secretary.

Scalia, 55, is now a associate within the Washington workplace of the global legislation agency Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

While announcing the development, he, in a tweet, said, "I am pleased to announce that it is my intention to nominate Gene Scalia as the new secretary of labour".

The president made the announcement via Twitter on Thursday night, praising Scalia's work as a lawyer and in the field of labor. Scalia also served as the Labor Department's top lawyer, the Solicitor of the U.S. Labor Department, during the George W. Bush administration. He will be a great member of an Administration that has done more in the first 2 ½ years than perhaps any Administration in history!'

A press conference takes place at the U.S. Department of Labor on July 10, 2019 in Washington, DC. The combination of these two leaders really makes 1 plus 1 equal 11.

From Friday, when Mr. Acosta formally leaves over his role in the Jeffrey Epstein case as a US attorney, Mr. Acosta's deputy, Patrick Pizzella, who is more congenial to free-market conservatives, will be acting secretary of labor. Epstein was arrested in NY on new federal sex-trafficking charges on July 6. After discussing the idea with several senior Trump officials, Cotton spoke to the president Thursday morning and joined a meeting later in the afternoon during which the president offered Scalia the job.

Krischer said that after the state charged Epstein with a felony count of solicitation of prostitution, the U.S. Attorney's Office secured a 53-page indictment on felony charges, which he said was "abandoned after secret negotiations between Mr. Epstein's lawyers and Mr. Acosta".

Sources told Newsmax that the nominee has a very close relationship with present Acting Secretary of Labor Patrick Pizzella.
