Rick Perry To Step Down From Energy Secretary Post

Reuters reports US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry has told President Donald Trump he will step down.

Perry's departure comes a day before a deadline set by Democrats in the US House of Representatives.

Perry is engulfed in the largest scandal yet to threaten Trump’s presidency, over Ukraine policy.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney says Trump had directed Perry to work with Rudy Giuliani on the issue.
