Trump’s Expected Pick for Top USDA Scientist Is Not a Scientist but a Pro-Trump Advocate
Sam Clovis likely to be named undersecretary of the USDA department that manages research on everything from climate change to nutrition.
Clovis has never taken a graduate course in science and is openly skeptical of climate change. While he has a doctorate in public administration and was a tenured professor of business and public policy at Morningside College for 10 years, he has published almost no academic work.
