President Donald Trump sacks Secret Service boss Randolph Alles

Alles' departure stems from a personality conflict within the agency, three officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the personnel matter.

The removal of Alles marked the latest in a long line of firings and resignations of senior officials in the Trump administration, a list that has included the secretaries of state, defense, homeland security, interior, veterans affairs and health and human services, the attorney general and numerous senior White House aides.

Nielsen, who oversaw Trump's bitterly contested immigration policies during her tumultuous 16-month tenure, resigned amid a surge in the number of migrants at the border with Mexico.

His appointment was set to fulfill the recommendations of a group of former senior government officials that reviewed the Secret Service in 2014 and found that it was an "insular agency" in need of an outsider to lead it.

Tom Brady's joins Twitter with the lamest April Fools' joke
Of course, Brady previously said he wanted to play until he was 45 , adding that he feels faster now than he felt at age 18. Brady, who turns 42 on August 3, used a picture from the Patriots' Super Bowl parade as part of his Twitter profile.

Last week, Mr Trump said he "could not be happier" with the Secret Service.

Who will replace her: Kevin McAleenan, the current US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary after Nielsen's departure.

A source familiar with the director said his ouster was not related to the recent scrutiny the Secret Service got after a Chinese woman illegally entered the President's Mar-a-Lago club carrying Chinese passports and a flash drive containing malware.

One official described the firings as "a near-systematic purge" at the Department of Homeland Security.
