WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he plans to nominate Eugene Scalia, the son of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, as his next secretary of Labor - succeeding Alex Acosta, who announced his resignation last week amid an uproar over an old plea deal he struck with a wealthy financier now facing a new round of sex trafficking charges.

"I am pleased to announce that it is my intention to nominate Gene Scalia as the new Secretary of Labor. Gene has led a life of great success in the legal and labor field and is highly respected not only as a lawyer, but as a lawyer with great experience working with labor and everyone else," Trump said Thursday night in a pair of tweets. "He will be a great member of an Administration that has done more in the first 2 1/2 years than perhaps any Administration in history!"..
