President Trump is removing the director of the Secret Service, Randolph Alles. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Alles will be replaced by James M. Murray, a career Secret Service member.

This comes one day after Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen announced her resignation. President Trump confirmed the resignation with a tweet and also announced Kevin McAleenan as the acting secretary. Even though Nielsen oversaw hard-line immigration policies like family separation, she reportedly clashed with the president.
