Donald Trump and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen

According to CBS News reporter Pamela Falk, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen met with President Donald Trump this evening, but her resignation was the only result. Nielsen went to the meeting “with no intention to resign,” CNN reported, so it’s unclear who leaked that her resignation would be requested.

Nielsen’s relationship with Trump has been fraught with battles as the president has sought to manufacture a war with Mexico on the border.

Just last week Nielsen called that the situation at the border is a catastrophe.

“We are in disaster response… it really is an emergency,” she said in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo. She claimed it’s as if we just had a “Cat 5 hurricane.”

According to CNN’s Jake Tapper, Nielsen had no intention of resigning, “rather was going there with an agenda.”

“But, the source said, it is believed within the administration that President Trump will be pushing for personnel changes and there are others afoot beyond the ICE director nominee who was pulled Friday,” Tapper tweeted. “The source notes President Trump‘s frustration with the current asylum laws, and his desire for individuals who work for the administration to block central American asylum seekers from entering the United States —- contrary to the laws on the books that allow their entry.”

Published

President Donald Trump's racism is shocking the entire globe, Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent wrote in a Thursday column.

"One of the most chilling things about President Trump’s hate-rally in North Carolina — which devolved into chants of “send her back,” directed at a nonwhite immigrant member of Congress — was the profusion of tweets about it from abroad," Sargent reported.

"As the president of the United States leads a domestic hate movement, the world is watching," he explained.

"Hicks told the committee last month that she was not aware of the hush payment to Stormy Daniels when it was arranged.
