Reports: Nick Ayers, Thomas Homan in Running for Top Administration Positions

Published

Several news outlets are reporting a potentially imminent White House shakeup in President Donald J. Trump’s administration.

Politico report said that Nick Ayers, top aide to Vice President Michael R. Pence is in the running to replace current Trump Chief of Staff John F. Kelly.

“Two White House officials who were skeptical this summer of Ayers’ chances of becoming chief of staff both said this week that they think Trump is now serious about wanting to tap him,” the report said. “The officials both cited Ayers’ work on Pence’s midterm campaigning strategy, which they said impressed Trump.”

A source with knowledge of conversations between Pence and Ayers expressed doubt about Ayer’s willingness to support Trump’s agenda in a conversation with Big League Politics.

Politico also reported that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen could be on her way out the door alongside Kelly. Trump is reportedly eyeing former U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) head Thomas Homan for that role.

“Tapping Homan to run the Department of Homeland Security would almost certainly energize Trump’s base,” that report said. “The tough-talking lawman once recommended charging so-called sanctuary city politicians “with crimes” and has pugnaciously defended even Trump’s most controversial immigration moves, including separating children from their parents at the border.”

The “family separation” policy was not signed into law by Trump.
