President Donald Trump has appointed Eric Hargan as acting Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), the White House said on Tuesday. Hargan is currently deputy secretary of HHS and earlier served on Trump’s transition team for HHS. The appointment comes following Tom Price’s resignation as HHS Secretary last week over his use of costly private charter planes for government business. U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, considered a potential successor to Price, said on Tuesday he believed he could best serve the Trump administration in his current role.

More details are awaited.
