President Donald Trump has officially nominated Kirstjen Nielsen to be the new Homeland Security secretary.

Nielsen was Kelly's chief of staff when he was DHS Secretary, and Kelly later brought her into the same role at the White House, where some staffers came to see her as the former general's dreaded enforcer.

Nielsen formerly served as John Kelly's chief of staff when he held the position of Trump's first DHS secretary.

Mr. Kelly and Ms. Nielsen arrived at the White House after a tumultuous period that led to the departure of Reince Priebus, Mr. Trump's first chief of staff, and Sean Spicer, his original press secretary. As a young attorney, she drafted legislation and policy at the Transportation Security Administration, then served as a special adviser for emergency preparedness and disaster management under President George W. Bush.

"There will be no on-the-job training", he said. "She will be ready on day one", Trump said during a formal ceremony in the White House's East Room.

The trust Kelly has in Nielsen will be crucial because, if confirmed, she'll have plenty on her plate. She is the premiere candidate for the homeland security post who had benefited in the department according to the statement.

Though the White House confirmed her nomination, the president gave an on-camera announcement Thursday afternoon.

Trump said in October 12 remarks at the White House that Nielson was "right by [Kelly's] side" during his tenure as homeland security secretary.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), a ranking member of the House Homeland Security panel, said he was pleased Trump had selected a permanent agency head "after letting the critical national security position remain vacant as the nation faced multiple major hurricanes and a domestic terrorism attack".
