On Monday, the Trump administration announced the forced resignation of Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. Reports indicated that the president wants staffers who take a more hardline approach to immigration than Nielsen.

On Fox News Monday, host Shep Smith unloaded on Nielsen and the Trump White House.

"The president said Kevin McAleenan will serve as acting homeland security secretary," Smith said.

"Right now he's the commissioner of customs and border protection. This comes after the president visited the border on Friday and said he wanted to take a tougher approach on immigration. Tougher, apparently, than what we saw with kids in cages," Smith observed.

Conservatives on Twitter were not pleased by Smith's take.
