President Obama Nominates McDonald to Head VA Department

This is President Obama’s nominee to head the struggling Veterans Affairs Department, Robert McDonald.

He is the former Proctor and Gamble Chief Executive and a West Point graduate.

The VA has been under fire after reports of treatment delays and cover-ups at veterans hospitals.

About a month ago, VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned.

On the day Shinseki stepped down, the president said the Veterans Affairs health care system needs an overhaul.
