Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - NATION - ——— As­so­ci­ated Press

WASH­ING­TON >> Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Thurs­day in­tro­duced his choice to lead the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity, a for­mer staffer at the sprawl­ing fed­eral agency who he says will need “no on-the-job train­ing” to take on the lead role. Trump called on Con­gress to “put pol­i­tics aside” and con­firm deputy White House chief of staff Kirst­jen Nielsen by a “strong, bi­par­ti­san vote.”

Her nom­i­na­tion must be con­firmed by the Sen­ate. “There will be no on the job train­ing for Kirsten. She is ready on Day One,” Trump said.
