President Donald Trump's choice for labor secretary Andrew Puzder has withdrawn as Cabinet nominee. A CEO of the company that owns fast-food chains Hardee's and Carl's Jr., Puzder faced conflict of interests because of his position on labor issues and using the services of an undocumented immigrant housekeeper.
