Donald Trump Nominated Non-Scientist to be USDA's Chief Scientist

About: Scientists
President Trump's pick to be the chief scientist for the USDA is not actually a scientist. Sam Clovis holds a doctorate in public administration and not in any scientific field. Clovis has never published any scientific papers. He instead was a conservative radio talk show host that regularly supported Trump and denounced climate change as man made.
