Energy Secretary Rick Perry tells Trump he’ll step down by year’s end

Energy Secretary Rick Perry will leave his job by the end of the year, President Donald Trump said Thursday. Perry was traveling with Trump to Texas when he told Trump of his decision aboard Air Force One. House Democrats have subpoenaed Perry for documents related to a Ukrainian state-owned energy company as well as his involvement in a July call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
