Trump Nominates Kirstjen Nielsen To Head Homeland Security

Kirstjen Nielsen was the choice of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. She is a long time public servant

President Donald Trump has officially nominated Kirstjen Nielsen to be the new Homeland Security secretary.

"There will be no on-the-job training for Kirstjen".

President Donald Trump urged the Senate Thursday to quickly confirm Kirstjen Nielsen as Secretary of Homeland Security. She is the premiere candidate for the homeland security post who had benefited in the department according to the statement.

Neither the White House nor Nielsen responded to requests for comment.

"She's a total homeland security expert - absolutely has no learning curve", said Michael Allen, who worked with Ms. Nielsen during the Bush administration. Kelly is now Trump's Chief of Staff.

"She has won the universal respect of my entire cabinet and senior White House staff", said Trump.

The big question is on whether or not he will succeed at sparking about order in the West Wing which is at the moment plagued by infighting and disorganization.

Mr. Kelly pushed hard for her selection, making a personal appeal to Mr. Trump during a monthslong search process.

If confirmed, Nielsen will be taking over for Acting Secretary Elaine Duke, who has served in DHS' top spot since Kelly departed in July. "It seems like more of a lazy pick than a wide search". Duke recently got into some controversy when she said that the hurricane response effort in Puerto Rico was a "good news story".

Nielsen is Trump's current deputy chief of staff under Kelly.

"I am pleased that the President has finally made a nomination for Secretary of Homeland Security after letting the critical national security position remain vacant as the nation faced multiple major hurricanes and a domestic terrorism attack".
