President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he will nominate Acting Secretary Chad Wolf to be the Secretary of Homeland Security.
"I am pleased to inform the American Public that Acting Secretary Chad Wolf will be nominated to be the Secretary of Homeland Security. Chad has done an outstanding job and we greatly appreciate his service!" tweeted President Trump.
Wolf has been acting head of Department of Homeland Security since November 2019, following the resignation of Kevin McAleenan—who was not confirmed by congress.
The last Senate-confirmed secretary of DHS was Kirstjen Nielsen. Nielsen resigned in April 2019 and it has now been over 500 days since there was a Senate-confirmed secretary leading the DHS.
