An ABC News report is suggesting the Trump Administration may be about to undergo another shake up with the president reportedly considering removing Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen and replacing chief of staff John Kelly.

According to the Washington Post, Trump cancelled a planned trip with Neilsen this week to visit U.S. troops at the South Texas border and reportedly told aides over the weekend he wants her out as soon as possible. According to ABC News, several sources revealed the president, who wants to toughen U.S. immigration policies, is unhappy with Nielsen’s efforts on implementing stronger border control and wants to replace her with someone who will enforce his more stringent immigration plans.

ABC News are reporting President Trump is also considering replacing Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, with Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers.
