WASHINGTON (AP) -

President Donald Trump plans a news conference about midday Thursday to announce his nominee for labor secretary — "a star, great person," in his words.

Trump's first pick for the job, fast food chain executive Andy Puzder, withdrew from consideration after it was revealed he employed a housekeeper who wasn't authorized to work in the U.S.

Trump has blamed Senate Democrats for stalling or complicating the confirmation process of several of his Cabinet nominees.
