President Trump says he's chosen Alexander Acosta to be labor secretary — a day after Trump's first nominee, fast-food executive Andrew Puzder, withdrew when he lost support among Republican senators.

NPR White House correspondent Scott Horsley (@HorsleyScott) joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss Trump's press conference at the White House on Thursday.
