Trump nominee says he’ll quit his CEO job if confirmed, and step away from his business empire

Please share and comment if you support President Trump’s picks. Andrew Puzder says he will resign as CEO if confirmed as the secretary of labor.

apnews.com reports: President Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of labor has proposed avoiding conflicts of interest by resigning as CEO of his fast food empire, selling off hundreds of holdings and recusing himself from government decisions in which he has a financial interest, according to his ethics filings with the government. “I will not participate personally and substantially in any particular matter in which I know that I have a financial interest directly and predictably affected by the matter,” without a waiver from government ethics officials, Andrew Puzder wrote in the nine-page filing, dated Tuesday and obtained by The Associated Press. Puzder is CEO of CKE Restaurants, Inc., which owns such chains as Hardee’s and Carl’s, Jr. Puzder’s intent, spokesman George Thompson said, is to recuse himself from all matters involving CKE or its parent companies.
