Trump to Nominate Kirstjen Nielsen as Homeland Security Secretary, Official Says

Kirstjen Nielsen, John Kelly's principal deputy chief of staff, has been nominated to serve as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Neither the White House nor Nielsen responded to requests for comment on the plans, which were first reported by Politico.

The White House said Nielsen has "extensive professional experience in the areas of homeland security policy and strategy, cybersecurity, critical infrastructure and emergency management".

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Deputy Chief of Staff Kirstjen Nielsen speak together as they walk across the South Lawn of the White House in August.

The tweet threatening to revoke NBC's broadcast license is the latest in an ongoing war Trump has had with the press . As it turns out, Trump's comment on NBC was one more inaccurate tweet .


If confirmed, Nielsen will become just the third woman in Trump's cabinet, joining Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. She was Kelly's top aide when the former four-star Marine general led the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) during the early months of the Trump administration. While two of those people cautioned that the president could always change his mind before a formal announcement, the others said the decision was slated to be announced formally Thursday.

Nielsen went to work at the White House in September, after Trump named Kelly, then DHS Secretary, as his chief of staff. "It's a little concerning that she seems to have little background in immigration security and policy, but those individual agencies are in good hands already, and there is a strong core of career managers", said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, which favours more limits on immigration.

Added Frances Townsend, her boss at the White House during the Bush administration: "She is tough as nails, competent and has rightly earned the president's respect".
