President Trump said Tuesday that his pick for drug czar, Rep. Tom Marino, has withdrawn from consideration.

The decision comes after the Pennsylvania Republican congressman came under scrutiny in reports claiming he helped move legislation protecting big drug companies.

Trump tweeted Tuesday, “Rep. Tom Marino has informed me that he is withdrawing his name from consideration as drug czar. Tom is a fine man and a great Congressman!”

Twitter ripped Trump’s Tweet:

Democrats and at least one Republican had pressed the president on Monday to pull Marino’s nomination following a weekend Washington Post/”60 Minutes” report on the drug legislation.

Amid the firestorm, Trump had seemed to leave Marino dangling during his Monday press conference alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., at the White House.

So Trump nominates someone without Vetting his background and he is running the country. This is a serious lack of judgement and just points to how blaze he is in his role as POTUS.
