Energy Dept. Denies Rick Perry Is Stepping Down As Secretary

An Energy Department spokeswoman is  rejecting reports  that Secretary Rick Perry is planning to leave the Trump administration.  She said in a statement, "He is happy where he is serving President Trump and leading the Department of Energy." Bloomberg was the  first to report Wednesday  that Perry's preparing to leave his post, citing unnamed sources.

The outlet noted that Perry's departure isn't imminent, but also said he's wants to "build his income before retiring." Despite once vowing to eliminate the Energy Department when he was running for president in 2011, the former Texas governor has served as the head of the department for  more than two years .

Earlier this year, he  called his role as secretary  "the coolest job I've ever had." Perry recently  denied reports  that he was interested in leading the Department of Homeland Security following former Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's resignation.
