CABINET/LABOR/TRUMP PEOPLE/ALEXANDER ACOSTA: “President Trump moved quickly on Thursday [2-16-17] to replace his first choice for labor secretary, choosing R. Alexander Acosta, a Florida law school dean and former assistant attorney general for civil rights. Mr. Acosta would be the only Hispanic in Mr. Trump’s cabinet…
In Mr. Acosta, Mr. Trump chose a nominee with deep experience in labor relations, law and education. He addressed concerns about the lack of diversity in his administration. And he tapped someone whose chances of being confirmed appear to be relatively high, because Mr. Acosta has made it through the process three times before for different roles.”
