Trump expected to nominate top Kelly aide to lead DHS

Trump expected to nominate top Kelly aide to lead DHS”

President Donald Trump is expected to nominate White House aide Kirstjen Nielsen as his next secretary of Homeland Security.

Nielsen was Kelly's chief of staff while he was Homeland Security secretary.

Nielsen served as DHS chief of staff to former Secretary John Kelly until he was moved to the White House in July to be President Trump's chief of staff, and she followed him there as his principal deputy chief of staff.

Nielsen was a major part of Kelly's push to crack down on the information and people that reach the president.

Nielsen, 45, served as Kelly's chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security at the start of the administration and was a key player in the rollout of the president's immigration crackdown and travel ban.

Politico first reported the news Wednesday, citing "two administration officials and three outside advisers familiar with the process".

Prior to Nielsen's work for the current administration, she consulted on homeland security and preparedness matters, according to her biography at The George Washington University where she was a senior fellow at the school's Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.

Nielsen has a reputation as Kelly's "brusque, no-nonsense longtime aide", as Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush of The New York Times have described her. "While she's probably had some great jobs, it doesn't speak to the level of running a 200,000-person law enforcement agency".
