Recent staff shake-ups at the White House have rattled agencies from the FBI to the State Department. One cabinet member who hasn't received as much attention is Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue.

However, as Bloomberg reporter Alan Bjerga writes, Perdue "may be the most aggressive enforcer of President Donald Trump's pro-business and deregulatory agenda that the fewest Americans have ever heard of."

Here & Now's Lisa Mullins speaks with Bjerga (@AlanBjerga) about Perdue's time at the Department of Agriculture.

This segment aired on March 29, 2018.
