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".

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.
