Donald Trump just announced his pick to head the Department of Homeland Security, and it’s a great one!
Trump has picked another General, Gen. John Kelly. Gen. Kelly brings decades of security and safety expertise to the post.
We are also hoping that a Trump administration finds ways to keep us secure while also doing away with the obtrusive pat-downs at airports, taking off our shoes and belts, holding our hands up over our head like we’re about to be shot and similar nonsense.
More details on the appointment from the NY Post:
Donald Trump has named Gen. John Kelly to be the next Department of Homeland Security secretary, the transition team announced Monday.
“The American people voted in this election to stop terrorism, take back sovereignty at our borders, and put a stop to political correctness that for too long has dictated our approach to national security. I will tackle those issues with a seriousness of purpose and a deep respect for our laws and Constitution,” Kelly said in a statement.
“I am honored for the opportunity to be back in the service to our country, and our people,” added Kelly, who most recently was in charge of the U.S. Southern Command.Trump praised his pick as the right man for the job.
“Gen. John Kelly’s decades of military service and deep commitment to fighting the threat of terrorism inside our borders makes him the ideal choice to serve as our Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security,” Trump said in a statement.
“He is the right person to spearhead the urgent mission of stopping illegal immigration and securing our borders, streamlining TSA and improving coordination between our intelligence and law enforcement agencies. With Gen. Kelly at the helm of DHS, the American people will have a leader committed to our safety as well as one who will work hand-in-hand with America’s rank-and-file TSA, ICE and Border Patrol officers,” he added.
