Former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin describes his would-be successor as "a very honorable man who wants to do the right thing."

Trump announced last week that he was choosing his personal physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, to lead the massive Department of Veterans Affairs.

The White House and Shulkin have since waged a public campaign about whether or not Shulkin was fired. He says yes. The White House says no.

Shulkin was asked on CNN whether he was concerned about Jackson's lack of managerial experience. Shulkin says "I have comfort because I know Dr. Jackson."

Shulkin says the job of transforming the VA is no doubt challenging, but the key will be surrounding Jackson with a good team because "no one person can do this alone."
