President Trump attended the swearing-in Friday of new Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and promised to get funding from Congress for the border wall.
“We’re going to get the wall. If we don’t get the wall, we’ll have a lot of unhappy people, starting with me,” Mr. Trump said.
Mr. Trump acknowledged the importance of the swearing-in of the Cabinet official, an event wasn’t on the president’s public schedule. Vice President Mike Pence administered the oath.
“This is a very special occasion, because I ran on it,” Mr. Trump said, citing tougher immigration enforcement and the border wall. “This is one of the real big issues.”
