Trump Taps Kelly to Run Homeland Security

President-elect Donald Trump has tapped retired Marine Gen. John Kelly to lead his Department of Homeland Security, putting yet another high-ranking military officer into a key national security post, according to the Washington Post.

Trump has already made Marine Gen. James Mattis his defense secretary and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn his national security adviser, and he is considering retired Army Gen. David Petraeus for secretary of state.

Kelly, 66, is not expected to face difficulty being confirmed, according to the Post. He is viewed as a border security hawk who will please Trump backers looking for the president-elect to follow through on vows to limit immigration.
