Secret Service Director to Leave Trump Administration, Sources Say

Director of the United States Secret Service Randolph Alles meets with guests before speaking at the Atlanta Press Club in Atlanta Feb. 1 2018

The Secret Service is responsible for protecting senior USA officials including the president and vice president, former presidents and visiting heads of state.

"The President has directed an orderly transition in leadership for this agency and I intend to abide by that direction", he wrote.

Just five days ago, Trump said he "could not be happier with Secret Service" following the Mar-a-Lago incident.

The announcement of his departure on Monday comes a day after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned. Alles reported to Nielsen.

Alles had been told Trump was preparing to make changes in leadership throughout the Department of Homeland Security, which includes oversight of the Secret Service. He said Customs and Border Protection chief Kevin McAleenan would take her place as acting DHS secretary.

Laurence Leamer, who has authored a book about Mar-a-Lago, told the Post said that once Zhang got past the receptionist, "You can go anywhere".

The President in recent weeks empowered Stephen Miller to lead the administration's border policies "and he's executing his plan" with what amounts to a wholesale decapitation or the Department of Homeland Security leadership, the official says.

You can now control people adding you to WhatsApp groups
To note , the problem of fake news on WhatsApp has grown drastically over the years, especially in India. The feature has to be enabled by the user, which in my view should have arrived by default.

The letter, addressed to the president, said: "Despite our progress in reforming homeland security for a new age, I have determined that it is the right time for me to step aside".

Alles became the agency's head after a 26-year-old California man wearing a backpack managed to scale the fence along the southern side of the White House in March 2017 - the first such breach reported during Trump's presidency.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly expressed his frustration with the flow of migrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border, and his top officials' inability to fix the matter.

The news was confirmed by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement.

He told USA Today in a 2017 interview that the agency's funding problems were partly caused by the president's large family and their multiple, oft-visited Trump properties both in the US and overseas.

Per the report, DHS General Counsel John Mitnick and U.S. Citizienship and Immigration Services Director Francis Cissna "are expected to be gone soon".
