Trump fires Secret Service chief – reports
Director of the United States Secret Service Randolph Alles meets with guests before speaking at the Atlanta Press Club in Atlanta, Feb. 1, 2018.
CNN is reporting that Trump has ordered White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to fire United States Secret Service director Randolph "Tex" Alles, just one day after the president dismissed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
The news was confirmed by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement.
The move comes after a series of leadership changes in the security branch of the Trump administration, including the resignation of Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and the decision to withdraw Ronald Vitiello as his nominee for director of ICE.
Mr Alles reported directly to Ms Nielsen, who announced her resignation on Sunday, after facing increasing pressure to do so from Mr Trump.
The Secret Service director reports to the director of Homeland Security.
CNN reported that Trump in recent weeks empowered his hard-line conservative aide Stephen Miller to lead the administration's border policies and quoted the official as saying Miller's plans amount to a wholesale decapitation of the Department of Homeland Security's leadership.
She said that Trump has picked career Secret Service member James M. Murray to take over the agency in May.

Who will replace her: Kevin McAleenan, the current US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary after Nielsen's departure.
NBC News also reported that there could be additional ousters, but did not confirm which officials could be fired.
Unconfirmed reports citing the same anonymous sources also say that United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) director Francis Cissna and DHS General Counsel John Mitnick will be asked to leave as well.
