President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he would nominate Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary, Chad Wolf, to permanently head the agency.
In a post on Twitter, Trump said he was "pleased to inform the American Public that Acting Secretary Chad Wolf will be nominated to be the Secretary of Homeland Security."
The announcement comes after the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) found earlier this month that Wolf's acting appointment did not follow processes outlined in federal law, and top Democrats called on Wolf and another Trump-appointed immigration official to step down.
