TRUMP NOMINATES DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF TO LEAD HOMELAND SECURITY
WASHINGTON : President Donald Trump will nominate his deputy chief of staff, Kirstjen Nielsen, as his next secretary of Homeland Security, the White House announced on Wednesday. Nielsen formerly served as John Kelly’s chief of staff when he held the position of Trump’s first DHS secretary. She moved with Kelly to the White House when Trump tapped him to serve as his own chief of staff, and was quickly named principal deputy. Nielsen, an expert in homeland and national security policy, previously served as a special assistant to former President George W Bush and worked for the Transportation Security Administration.
