US President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced the nomination of Barbara Barrett for US Air Force secretary.

“I am pleased to announce my nomination of Barbara Barrett of Arizona, and former Chairman of the Aerospace Corporation, to be the next Secretary of the Air Force. She will be an outstanding Secretary!” Trump tweeted.

The 68-year-old Barrett worked in the banking sector, business, and also served as US Ambassador to Finland (2008-2009).
