    Labor Secretary Thomas Perez speaks at a news conference at the Treasury Department in Washington, on June 22, 2016, on the annual Social Security and Medicare Boards of Trustees report.

    Current Labor Secretary Tom Perez may be running to join Hillary Clinton on the Democratic ticket, NBC News reported. 

    Perez proved to be an effective surrogate for Clinton and a staunch critic of Donald Trump during an exclusive interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” 

    Perez avoided talking about his personal foreign policy stance, but attacked Trump, calling him a “train wreck for American values” and “outsourcer-in-chief.” 

    For voters who have doubts trusting Clinton, Perez said they should look to the “body of her work across her life, including the work she did when she was not in the spotlight" to see that "her moral compass is about helping those who are in the shadows."
