The White House is expected to withdraw Andy Puzder's nomination as labor secretary on Wednesday, according to reporters at Bloomberg News and Fox Business Network.

He was a member of the National Labor Relations Board, where he participated in or authored more than 125 opinions. "The man I will be announcing for labor is a star, a great person, a great person".

The president announced the nomination the day after his original pick, Andrew Puzder, withdrew after it became clear he lacked enough Republican votes for Senate confirmation.

What troubled majority Republicans most of all was Puzder's acknowledgement that he had not paid taxes on the housekeeper until after Trump nominated him to the Cabinet post December 9 - five years after he had fired the worker.

The CKE Restaurants chief executive has also been criticised for his remarks on women and employees at his employees.

At least seven Republican senators, including Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, declined to publicly back Puzder in advance of the confirmation hearing. According to two Senior Senate aides, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did in fact inform the White House that Puzder would not be confirmed if there was a vote.

"These are rumours and we've heard this tune before", said George Thompson, a spokesman for Puzder.

Puzder, whose company portfolios includes the Hardees and Carls Jr. chains, has also drawn criticism for his opposition to the minimum wage. "We don't need a labor secretary who makes millions while his workers are paid starvation wages".
