David Shulkin, Trump's nominee to head Veterans Affairs, rejects major changes to the VA, per prepared remarks obtained by the Associated Press;

VA is a unique national resource that is worth saving, and I am committed to doing just that... There will be far greater accountability, dramatically improved access, responsiveness and expanded care options, but the Department of Veterans Affairs will not be privatized under my watch.
