"All these are complicated matters and I will keep on to guide the Department to accomplish everything that we are able to in order to implement the President's security-focused schedule", she added, without saying anything regarding resignation programs.

This has not been the first time Trump has berated his cabinet officials.

Donald Trump threw a 30-minute tantrum when he was told that the federal government doesn't have the authority to completely shut down the USA border, a new report claims.

Nielsen did not deny the meeting had grown heated in a statement Thursday evening, but said she shared the president's frustrations.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who pushed for Nielsen - his former deputy - to be DHS secretary, told reporters Friday that he expects her to stay on the job.

Those held include Syrian national Saddam Jamal, who served as the so-called Daesh governor of Syria's eastern Euphrates region. We will remind that on may 6, military-air forces of Iraq attacked a position of the command of the ISIS terrorists in Syria.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen released a statement about the New York Times report that she was contemplating resigning her position after being "berated" by President Trump. "The Secretary is hard at work today on the President's security-focused agenda and supporting the men and women of @DHSgov", Houlton wrote.

DHS oversees U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Instead, she told the newspaper that she will "continue to direct the department to do all we can to implement the president's security-focused agenda" as head of almost 20,000 department employees. While doing so, he got furious at Nielsen and blamed her for not introducing enough measures to stop border crossings.

Administration officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide a candid account of the private meeting.

In recent weeks, Nielsen has announced measures aimed at deterring illegal migration, including criminal prosecutions for parents who cross the border illegally with their children.

The signing of the order is a formality required by the Consitution whereby the president appoints the elected Prime Minister. The ruling party said it will not nominate their own candidate for the second round, just like in the first round.

One White House official said Nielsen was in the building again Thursday. "Give me some reinforcements, please", he urged the crowd, referring to Republicans in Congress who have balked at the billions of dollars he has requested for border security.

One person familiar with Trump's blowup at the meeting said it was prompted by a discussion about why Mexico was not doing more to prevent illegal border crossings into the United States.

Current U.S. immigration and asylum laws allow foreign nationals passing through Mexico to arrive at the southern border and claim credible fear.

While border apprehensions dipped past year to their lowest levels ever, the numbers have been ticking up in recent months, returning to more typical historical levels. "The president is rightly frustrated that existing loopholes and the lack of Congressional action have prevented this administration from fully securing the border and protecting the American people". But this year, they have risen again. The president's anger was stoked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who remarked that the Department of Homeland Security could just arrest people at the border, the source said.
