Trump Picks David Bernhardt To Lead The Interior Department

President Donald Trump  announced via Twitter Monday that he plans to nominate acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt for the permanent position.  Bernhardt stepped in when  former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke  submitted his resignation amid  multiple internal   ethics probes  into his spending and alleged business dealings.

The former energy lobbyist is reportedly expected to continue pursuing  fossil fuels work  that Zinke started during his time at the Department of the Interior.

Environmental groups  have expressed their disapproval for the president's pick to lead the agency, with some saying his lobbying work may pose a conflict of interest on certain issues.  Bernhardt tweeted  his gratitude for the nomination, calling it "a humbling privilege."  His nomination will first go to the Senate energy committee before a full Senate floor vote.

The Republican majority in the Senate makes it likely that he'll be confirmed.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
