Acting Defense Secretary Shanahan Struggles To Shed 'Boeing Guy' Image

Critics say President Donald Trump’s acting defense secretary Pat Shanahan is the "Boeing guy" who is still doing the bidding of his former employer.

According to Politico, Shanahan’s critics call him a weak link on the president's team--but he says he knows how to deal with the unexpected.

Shanahan has been waging a counterattack, making more than two dozen trips to Capitol Hill in the past few months to win over lawmakers and enlisting the support of national security leaders in both parties.
