“The day after his first choice withdrew, President Trump on Thursday nominated Alexander Acosta, the dean of the Florida International University law school, to become his new Labor secretary. ‘I think he’ll make a tremendous secretary of Labor,’ Trump said at a White House news conference. Acosta, a Miami native who is Cuban-American, did not attend the East Room event. If confirmed, he would be the first Latino in Trump’s cabinet.” (02/16/17)
