Donald just drained the swamp and showed him the door.
If Trump is good at anything, he’s good at picking the right people for the right job.
And firing people who are no longer fit for duty.
Recently, he’s been cleaning house, firing top officials. Why? Because they’re just not getting the job done.
Trump is all about results. America entrusted him to run the best administration. And he’s going to get it.
After removing the Homeland Security leader Sunday, he’s sending another top official packing. From The Hill:
President Trump is removing U.S. Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles from his position.
Alles reports directly to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who resigned Sunday effective April 10, reportedly due to her resistance against White House directives to resume separating migrant children from their families.
Trump doesn’t play games. If you done screwed up, you gotta pay the piper.
And that’s just what happened with Secret Service director Tex.
It looks like Tex may have shared Nielsen’s softer stance on immigration enforcement. He may not have supported Trump’s goal of cracking down on the border.
But there’s also speculation that his handling of the bizarre encounter at Mar-a-Lago was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
You may remember the incident. A Chinese woman made it into Trump’s club, only to be found carrying two passports and a device with malware.
You don’t have to guess at what she was up to. It’s very possible this woman was trying to infect computer’s at Trump’s “Second White House” with viruses in order to steal information.
How this woman even made it inside is a big question. A question, I’m assuming Tex wasn’t able to answer.
So, in Trump-like fashion, he got the boot.
President Trump doesn’t play games. For years, we’ve gotten used to a White House that didn’t produce results. It was the norm for politicians to talk big, but do nothing.
Not in the Trump administration. He is determined to make good on his promises.
And he’s determined to have a Homeland Security that protects the American people, and a Secret Service that is free of scandal and protects the President.
