President Donald Trump on Thursday announced his intent to nominate Alexander Acosta, a former Justice Department official and current dean of Florida International University College of Law, for labor secretary, just a day after his first pick, fast-food CEO Andrew Puzder, backed out.

“He’s had a tremendous career,” Trump said from the White House. “I think he’ll be a tremendous secretary of Labor.”
