Trump Says Kevin McAleenan Is Leaving As Homeland Security Chief

https://dailycaller.com/

President Trump announced on Twitter on Friday that Kevin McAleenen will be leaving as acting director of homeland security after a six-month stint in which he dealt with an unprecedented influx of asylum-seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump said that he will be naming a replacement next week.

Trump did not explain the decision, but McAleenan after seeming to criticize the administration in an interview with The Washington Post last week.

“What I don’t have control over is the tone, the message, the public face and approach of the department in an increasingly polarized time,” McAleenan told The Post. “That’s uncomfortable, as the accountable, senior figure.”
