Trump withdraws ATF nominee amid Republican concerns

President Donald Trump abruptly withdrew his nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms on Tuesday afternoon, officially putting an end to the troubled nomination of Chuck Canterbury.

The former president of the Fraternal Order of Police was nominated last year but the appointment has been stalled due to conservative concerns over his views on gun rights. The Senate Judiciary Committee put his nomination on ice last year after those complaints began to emerge. Trump renominated Canterbury in February.

An administration official said Canterbury would have been unable to get out of the Judiciary Committee, leading to the withdrawal.
