On June 7, President Donald Trump announced via Twitter he had chosen Wray to head the FBI. Trump said Wray’s experience made him an ideal nominee for the post.

After completing his service, Wray received the Edmund J. Randolph Award, the Justice Department's highest honor for public service and leadership.
