DHS nom­i­nee ‘is ready on Day One’

Star Tribune - - THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Thurs­day in­tro­duced his choice to lead the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity: a for­mer staffer at the sprawl­ing post-9/11 fed­eral agency who he says will need “no on-the-job train­ing” for the lead role. Deputy White House Chief of Staff Kirst­jen Nielsen “is ready on Day One,” Trump said dur­ing a cer­e­mony in the East Room. The pres­i­dent also called on Con­gress to “put pol­i­tics aside” and con­firm Nielsen by a “strong, bi­par­ti­san vote.”
