President Donald Trump tweeted late Thursday that he intends to nominate Eugene Scalia, a lawyer and the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, for Secretary of Labor.

Scalia previously served in the George W. Bush administration.

If approved by the Senate, Scalia will succeed former labor secretary Alex Acosta.

Acosta, a former federal prosecutor, resigned under pressure earlier this month amid criticism of how he handled a sex crimes case involving the financier Jeffrey Epstein when Acosta was a federal prosecutor in Florida.
