Trump introduces pick for Homeland Security
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.
