Looks Like Trump Is About To Ax Another Underperforming Government Official
It looks like Trump is getting ready to fire a Top Level Administration Official. This time he has set his sights on Secretary of the DHS Kirstjen Neilson.
“President Trump has told advisers he has decided to remove Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and her departure from the administration is likely to occur in the coming weeks, if not sooner, according to five current and former White House officials.
Trump canceled a planned trip with Nielsen this week to visit U.S. troops at the border in South Texas and told aides over the weekend that he wants her out as soon as possible, these officials said. The president has grumbled for months about what he views as Nielsen’s lackluster performance on immigration enforcement and is believed to be looking for a replacement who will implement his policy ideas with more alacrity.”
“Trump has been dissatisfied with Nielsen’s performance dating back for months, most notably slamming her during a 30-minute meeting in May after the number of illegal aliens entering the U.S. through the Southern Border soared for the second consecutive month.”
“Why don’t you have solutions? How is this still happening?” Trump demanded to know during the May meeting, later adding, “We need to shut it down. We’re closed.”
“The first to go is expected to be the deputy national security adviser, Mira Ricardel, who has clashed with First Lady Melania Trump. Mr. Trump is also leaning toward the ouster of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who is a close ally of Mr. Kelly, White House officials said. The president has decided to replace Ms. Nielsen, but hasn’t finalized the timing, White House officials said, in part because there isn’t an obvious candidate to replace her.
Mr. Trump has told aides that he is aware that forcing out Ms. Nielsen may result in Mr. Kelly quitting, administration officials said. Mr. Trump has told these aides that he is resigned to the possibility of Mr. Kelly leaving, and that he probably will replace Mr. Kelly with Nick Ayers, who is currently chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence.
At the White House Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Trump declined to say whether he planned to fire Ms. Nielsen or make other staff changes. “We’ll be talking about it,” he told reporters when asked about his plans.”
Trump is running the government like a business. He is only keeping the cream of the crop that Actually do the jobs they are assigned.
