Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska both said Wednesday they would not vote to support Betsy DeVos, President Trump’s choice for education secretary. The two women are the first sitting Republican senators to publicly say they wouldn’t back one of Trump’s Cabinet nominees.
Meanwhile, Trump has two words of advice for Mitch McConnell when it comes to confirming Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch: “Go nuclear.”
The U.S. Senate confirmed Rex Tillerson as Trump’s secretary of state on Wednesday, filling a key spot on the Republican’s national security team despite concerns about the former Exxon Mobil Corp chief executive officer’s ties to Russia.
