White House Names Chad Wolf As Acting Homeland Security Secretary

President Donald Trump has named Chad Wolf to be the next acting head of Homeland Security, the fifth person in the job for this administration.

While speaking to reporters Friday outside the White House en route to a rally in Mississippi, Trump said he had chosen Wolf, ending weeks of speculation over who would head up the department after Kevin McAleenan resigned in October.

He had previously served in several positions in the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), including as Chief of Staff of the Transportation Security Administration and Chief of Staff of DHS under Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen; as well as being Senior Director of a bipartisan lobbying firm.
