House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Phil Roe said Wednesday that David Shulkin did "a fantastic job" as Veterans Affairs Secretary and "I hate to see him go."

President Donald Trump fired Shulkin, amid continuing investigations over his travel and leadership of the agency, nominating Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson as his replacement.

"I respect President Trump's decision, support the president's agenda and remain willing to work with anyone committed to doing the right thing on behalf of our nation's veterans," Roe, the Tennessee Republican, said in a statement.

He said he was "reaching out" to Jackson — "and I look forward to building a strong relationship with him also."
