Trump Selects White House Aide for Homeland Security Chief

President Donald Trump nominated White House aide Kirstjen Nielsen to be the next secretary of Homeland Security on Wednesday.

When Kelly, the former DHS secretary, moved into his new role as White House chief of staff, Nielsen came with him to serve as his deputy.

The White House says Nielsen is the first Homeland Security secretary nominee to have previously worked in the department.

"I know you will fulfill your duties with dedication, determination and resolve".

Nielsen is a close confidant of Kelly and an expert in national security policy.

In addition, Nielsen was the senior legislative policy director for the Transportation and Security Administration, which operates under DHS, during the Bush administration.

In accepting the nomination, Nielsen said she hopes to "live up to the standards the American people expect and deserve".

If she is confirmed, Nielsen will lead a sprawling Cabinet agency charged with securing the nation's borders and airports, enforcing immigration laws, coordinating disaster relief efforts and overseeing the Secret Service and Coast Guard.

Mr. Kelly and Ms. Nielsen arrived at the White House after a tumultuous period that led to the departure of Reince Priebus, Mr. Trump's first chief of staff, and Sean Spicer, his original press secretary. Before she worked in the Trump administration, Nielsen founded a risk and security management consulting firm. That might have contributed to Trump thinking about her highly.

Though the White House confirmed her nomination, the president gave an on-camera announcement Thursday afternoon.

"However, I am very concerned about her past work in the Bush Administration during its botched response to Hurricane Katrina and am fearful that DHS - as well as this President - has not learned all the lessons from that tragedy given what we are seeing unravel in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands".
