Trump orders firing of U.S Secret Service Chief

President Donald Trump has
ordered firing of the U.S. Secret
Service Director, CNN reported on
Monday, a day after the
resignation of another top
national security official, Homeland Security Secretary
Kirstjen Nielsen.

The Secret Service is an agency
that provides protection for
president Trump and other top
U.S. officials.

Trump instructed his Acting Chief
of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, to fire
Secret Service Director, Randolph
Alles, CNN reported, citing
multiple administration officials.

The White House, Department of
Homeland Security and Secret
Service did not immediately
respond to requests for comment
from Reuters.

One official described the firings
to CNN as “a near-systematic
purge” at the Department of
Homeland Security, NAN reports.

The Secret Service director
reports to the director of
Homeland Security.

Nielsen, who oversaw Trump’s
bitterly contested immigration
policies during her tumultuous 16-
month tenure, resigned on Sunday
amid a surge in the number of
migrants at the border with Mexico.

Trump, seeking re-election in
2020, has taken a hard line
toward immigration since
becoming president in January
2017, and the issue may be a
central theme in next year’s election.
