Trump nominates his deputy chief of staff to lead DHS

WASHINGTON - President Trump introduced his pick to lead the Department of Homeland Security Thursday, formally nominating White House staffer and cybersecurity expert Kristjen Nielsen.

Trump opened up his announcement by praising Kelly's tenure as Homeland Security secretary, and then reiterated how glad he is that he is still in the White House.

"Kirstjen can hit the ground running and there won't be a learning curve", Ridge said.

"I share the President's commitment to the security of the county and the safety of the American people", she said. She moved with Kelly to the White House when Trump tapped him as chief of staff. She's the first nominee to lead DHS to have previously worked there.

Trump declared his option in a disclosure that considered Ms. Nielsen's sizeable competent wisdom in the domain of homeland security policy and procedure, cyber security, crucial infrastructure and exigency management. "I look forward to working closely with the Administration and Ranking Member McCaskill to expedite the consideration of Ms. Nielsen's nomination and help make America safer and more secure".

On Wednesday, she greeted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau to the White House in a jaw-dropping grey pinstripe pantsuit outfit. That might have contributed to Trump thinking about her highly.

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".

If confirmed, Nielsen would replace Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke, who was widely criticized for characterizing the federal government's response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico as "a good news story". Trump said Duke would remain at DHS as Nielsen's deputy.
