But the people said the president has grown impatient with the department's current secretary, David Shulkin, and may want to replace him with someone already in his cabinet.

Shulkin's office did not immediately respond to the shopping charge, but the AP and other news outlets reported that the White House was feeling out Energy Secretary Rick Perry, the former Republican governor of Texas, to take over from Shulkin at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Perry had lunch with Trump at the White House on Monday.

Last month, Missal issued a scathing report charging that Shulkin wrongly charged the $4,132 airfare for his wife on a trip to Denmark and London last July, and also accepted free tickets to the Wimbledon tennis tournament. The veterans affairs post was among the slots Trump eyed for him before picking him for the Energy Department - one of three that Perry vowed to abolish during his 2012 presidential run, and the one whose name eluded him during an "oops" moment at a 2011 debate. A series of ill-conceived media contacts, however, may have damaged his relationship with the White House beyond fix, potentially leading to yet another high-profile ouster. Russian Federation concedes "dozens" of civilians injured in Syria clash MORE to the White House last week and told him to stop creating drama in his agency, Axios reported Sunday.

Kelly, who found out about The Times's article after he was contacted by reporters, reportedly called Shulkin following the interview and believed the secretary exploited the White House meeting, Axios reported. After their meeting, Shulkin told The New York Times that he had the full confidence of the White House to fire staffers he felt were disloyal to him. Per Axios's Jonathan Swan, back in February, Shulkin met with Chief of Staff John Kelly, who agreed to lend him a hand with staffing woes-not to authorize a so-called purge.
