Ironic As Trump Taps Former Texas Governor, Rick Perry As Energy Secretary

By Ikenga Chronicles December 13, 2016

Sources on Tuesday, December 13 disclosed that the US President-elect Donald Trump is set to pick Rick Perry who once advocated for the scrapping of Energy Department as for energy secretary.

Other contenders for the position were said to be Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin and Ray Washburne, a Trump fundraiser and former RNC finance chair.

The news of Perry’s likely emergence hit the airwaves after he visited the Trump Tower for a meeting to discuss the position.

Some find the pick ironic, as Perry once advocated for the scrapping of the Energy Department.

“I will tell you, it is three agencies of government when I get there that are gone. Commerce, Education, and the — what’s the third one there? Let’s see,” Perry had said in 2011 Presidential debate.

It was later disclosed that the third was the Department of Energy he wanted to eliminate.
