Trump considering Fox News contributor Thomas Homan as next Homeland Security chief: report
President Donald Trump is reportedly considering a Fox News contributor as his nominee as Secretary of Homeland Security.
Thomas Homan, former acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is being considered for DHS, Politico reported Tuesday.
Trump is expected to oust current DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
“Trump wants John Wayne on the border and Tom Homan is John Wayne,” a former Homeland Security official told Politico.
Homan is a Fox News contributor who pushed President Trump’s divisive rhetoric during the midterms.
On October 21, he praised President Trump as a “bulldog” for threatening to use the military along the southern border.
The next day, October 22, he claimed Democrats don’t want an immigration solution.
On October 29, he called the refugee caravan a national security issue.
Then, on October 31, he warned of the “sophisticated” nature of the migrant caravan.
