President Trump’s pick for hotel for dogs faces criticism after his family pets are killed in a fire
- by admin
Washington, DC – President Donald Trump’s nominee for the role of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s chief dog officer has faced criticism after a Facebook post in which the family pets were listed as a “priority” for the service, even though their owners had not yet died.
The nomination of Scott C. Hodge, a Republican from Georgia, has drawn criticism from animal rights groups, including the American Humane Association, which says it is “disappointed that the nominee will be tasked with the task of ensuring that the animals of the world are safe.”
Hodge is also expected to oversee a hiring freeze that has already prevented many federal employees from working full-time in the federal government.
He was previously a deputy assistant secretary of the interior.
He joined the agency in 2018 after serving as deputy undersecretary of the Army for research and development.
Hazelden, a former police officer who was also deputy under secretary of defense, has been nominated for the position of deputy assistant director of the office of inspector general.
He is expected to report to Trump in early 2019.
Hazeldern, who joined the Interior Department in 2018, had been a senior advisor to the president’s transition team on the issue of federal dog care.
The Washington Post first reported that he would be nominated.
Hodge, who worked in the Trump administration, is one of several candidates to be named to the position.
Other names being considered for the job include:Robert E. Cummings, the acting assistant secretary for civil rights and civil liberties at the Interior, who has been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent weeks for his role in a failed attempt to have a federal contractor fired for racial discrimination in the workplace.
Amber Hildebrand, a U.K.-based veterinarian, has also been called into question for her past role in an effort to shut down a private veterinarian network, the Dr. Robert Woodson Foundation, after it was reported she was paid $6,000 for an appearance by Woodson on Fox News.
