Trump just loves the generals.
He has just named John F. Kelly, who was Secretary of Homeland Security, as his new Chief of Staff. He is a retired United States Marine Corps general and the former commander of United States Southern Command.
The tweets that announced the change:
I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017
...and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017
I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country. We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017
Kelly approved more evasive TSA pat downs.
He is anti-pot legalization: Trump DHS Pick: U.S. Pot Legalization Efforts Are Harming War On Drugs
He considered separating kids from their undocumented parents: Homeland Security Chief Considering Separating Illegal Immigrant Kids From Parents
\He was hot for a more aggressive travel ban:Homeland Security Chief Tells Congress that Trump’s Travel Ban May Get Longer and Tougher...
Bottom Line: This is a very bad choice from the perspective of anyone who favors liberty. Probably Trumps worst appointment so far.
