New Delhi: US President-elect Donald Trump addressed the media for the first time since winning 2016 presidential elections. In his address, Trump said he is picking VA undersecretary David Shulkin to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Trump tweeted that Russia “has never tried to use leverage over me. I have nothing to do with Russia — no deals, no loans, no nothing!”
