REPORT: Inhofe surprised by Trump’s reversal on Shanahan; describes call from the president on decision


President Trump on Tuesday called Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., to tell him his plans to push out acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan after a media report revealed a domestic dispute nearly a decade ago between the former Boeing executive and his then-wife.

“He said, ‘I wanted you to be the first one to know we’ve come to a decision that it would be best for all parties and for the country, if he withdrew his name as the nominee,’” Inhofe recalled in an interview Tuesday in which he described his conversation with the president.

The article goes on to state the following:

Inhofe said he “was surprised” by the call, but told the president, “I’m sure the decision between the two of you was a good decision in light of the allegations.”
