The ouster of Veteran Affairs Secretary David Shulkin does not signal a desire by the Trump administration to privatize veterans' health services, according to a White House spokesperson.

"No one is talking about privatizing the VA," deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters said in an email to Politico.

She also told reporters that the selection of Dr. Ronny Jackson to replace Shulkin was not an indication of a privatization plan, according to the website.

In a column for The New York Times following his firing, Shulkin wrote: "I believe differences in philosophy deserve robust debate, and solutions should be determined based on the merits of the arguments.

"The advocates within the administration for privatizing VA health services, however, reject this approach. They saw me as an obstacle to privatization who had to be removed."
