President Donald Trump requested the removal of U.S. Secret Service Chief Randolph Alles as part of a broader shakeup at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), two sources familiar with the process tell The Daily Caller.

Two officials told the Associated Press that Alles's departure stems from a personality conflict within the agency.

"The President has directed an orderly transition in leadership for this agency and I intend to abide by that direction", he wrote.

The Secret Service director reports directly to the Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, who resigned on Sunday amid growing pressure from the President. Trump said Kevin McAleenan, the current US Customs and Border Protection commissioner, will become acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Trump said the incident was a "fluke", and claimed that security at his Mar-a-Lago resort was sufficient.

The series of sudden changes at DHS also raised eyebrows with some Republican leaders in the Senate.

The White House informed Alles recently of its desire to remove him, a source told the Caller.

Trump recommends Herman Cain for Federal Reserve seat
Moore told the New York Times earlier this week that "it's full speed ahead" and said that the White House was "100%" behind him. But his popularity slipped amid sexual harassment allegations from several women, which he denied as "completely false".

The announcement of his departure comes a day after the ouster of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Kelly, who left the White House at the end of past year, also supported Kirstjen Nielsen when she succeeded him at homeland security.

The Republican president, seeking re-election in 2020, has taken a hard line on immigration since taking office in January 2017, and he has said he will make border security a central theme in next year's race. "I could not be prouder of and more humbled by their service, dedication, and commitment to keep our country safe from all threats and hazards", she tweeted with an image of the resignation letter. Nielsen had been an aide to Kelly. She added Alles will be "leaving shortly", though the agency later said he would leave in May.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly expressed his frustration with the flow of migrants crossing the U.S. -Mexico border, and his top officials' inability to fix the matter.
