Who Is Patrick Shanahan? Trump Nominates Boeing Executive As Deputy Secretary Of Defense

President Donald Trump on Thursday nominated senior Boeing executive Patrick Shanahan as deputy secretary of defense. The nomination appears to be a sign of eased tensions between Trump and Boeing over the latter’s Air Force One program. The announcement was made along with nominations for five other Pentagon positions that have remained vacant since Trump’s inauguration in January. Shanahan does not have military or political experience, but he is reported to be familiar with the know-how of the defense sector from the business side.
