VA secretary chosen as designated survivor

Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin has been selected as tonight's designated survivor, according to a senior administration official.

Shulkin will be moved to an undisclosed place throughout President Donald Trump's speech tonight to a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill.

Commonly selected by the president's chief-of-employees, the designated survivor would be left to run the nation if a disaster have been to wipe out the entire presidential line of succession.

According to historians, selecting a designated survivor dates back to the 1960s, when the nation was afraid of a nuclear attack.
