Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is the latest cabinet Secretary President Donald Trump wants out of his administration, sources told the Washington Post.


Despite being chief of staff John Kelly's protege, Nielsen has come in conflict with people like John Bolton and Trump himself. So, the president is telling advisors she's out and it will likely happen within the coming weeks, if not sooner.

Trump has already canceled a planned trip with Nielsen to visit troops on the U.S./Mexico border and he told those aides close to him he wants her out as soon as the weekend.

A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security refused to comment on the developments.
