Trump says he did not ask Shanahan to withdraw

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters on Tuesday he would likely nominate Mark Esper to be the secretary of defense, hours after he named him to replace Patrick Shanahan as acting secretary.

Shanahan announced he would step down and withdraw from consideration to be defense secretary, which requires Senate confirmation.

Trump said he did not ask Shanahan to withdraw.

U.S. media published reports on Tuesday about domestic violence allegations surrounding Shanahan and his family.

Trump told reporters that he had heard about the allegations for the first time on Monday, and added that his administration had a very good vetting process for its nominees.
