Trump to nominate White House aide to head DHS

Trump to nominate White House aide to head DHS

Nielsen was former DHS Secretary John Kelly's deputy when he served in that role and moved with Kelly to the White House when he was tapped to be Trump's chief of staff.

Nielsen told the president she was "humbled by the trust you are placing in me".

Asked by a reporter if he was frustrated at all, Kelly said, "No, I'm not frustrated".

There have been reports that Kelly is unhappy in the job as Trump's legislative agenda stalls and the president continues to picks fights with everyone from senators to National Football League players to a mayor in hurricate-hit Puerto Rico. And at Trump's speech last month before the U.N., Kelly had his head in his hands. "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".

He concluded the White House press briefing by saying he would "enjoy reading about it tomorrow".

"People should be concerned about a state that has developed a pretty good ICBM capability", Kelly said, addressing the threat to Guam as well as the USA mainland.




"Some person that works way down inside an office or - Well, just develop some better sources", he said.

Prior to joining Kelly at Homeland Security, Nielsen was president of the firm Sunesis Consulting. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are operating off of contacts, leaks, whatever you call them, but I would just offer to you the advice, I would say, maybe develop some better sources.

The chief of staff also said the North Korean nuclear and missile threat is "manageable" for now but the isolated nation can not be allowed to develop the ability to strike the United States homeland.

"Right now we think the threat is manageable", he said, but added the situation would become more problematic over time if North Korea's capability "grows beyond where it is today".

Nielsen was Kelly's chief of staff while he was Homeland Security secretary. The chief of staff did so with a smile and a salute.
