  • U.S. Secret Service Director Randolph Alles speaks during a press conference at the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. on Oct. 26 2018

President Donald Trump reportedly mocked outgoing Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles' looks and called him "Dumbo" because of his ears.

Ms Sanders said Mr Alles had done "a great job at the agency over the last two years" and Mr Trump was thankful for his service.

The Secret Service said Randolph "Tex" Alles would depart his job next month.

Her remarks confirmed earlier reports by U.S. media, but Sanders did not elaborate on the circumstances of his departure.

Trump recently empowered adviser and immigration hardliner Stephen Miller to take charge of Team Trump's border policies "and he's executing his plan" by dismantling Homeland Security's leadership, the official said. "Mr. Alles will be leaving shortly and President Trump has selected James M. Murray, a career member of the [United States Secret Service], to take over as director beginning in May".

They said it was unrelated to the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and a recent security breach at the president's private club in Florida.

Alles, who previously served as the acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, oversaw the Secret Service as it faced money problems amid reports that the first family was straining protective resources.

"I could not be happier with Secret Service".

Asked if Mendy's availability would be a bonus for the hectic run-in, Guardiola said: "Everybody has to help us, not just Mendy". Sergio Aguero will travel south with his teammates on Friday but Guardiola is unsure whether he will be fit to face Brighton .

In the unusual episode, an unauthorized woman got past security carrying Chinese passports and numerous electronic devices, including phones and a thumb drive allegedly found to contain malware.

And regarding the incident at Mar-a-Lago, Trump said he is "not concerned at all".

"In addition to congressional dysfunction, I am concerned with a growing leadership void within the department tasked with addressing some of the most significant problems facing the nation".

The Secret Service and ICE are each part of DHS. The White House and DHS did not respond to requests for comment.

"United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel's John Mitnick are expected to be gone soon, and the White House is eyeing others to be removed".

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.

Trump was so frustrated about the surge in migrants that he announced he would cut off USA aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
