Marjorie Taylor Greene wants top Homeland Security job under Trump

Must Read

U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said at a stop in South Carolina ahead of today’s GOP primary there that she has her eye on a key Cabinet position if the Donald Trump wins in November.

“I’d be honored to serve President Trump in his next administration in any capacity that he asks me. But I’m certainly particularly interested in Homeland Security. I think it’s the top issue in the country,” she said at an appearance in Greenville.

The Georgia Republican and Trump loyalist was an architect of the House impeachment of Alejandro Mayorkas, the current leader of the Department of Homeland Security.

She and her allies pushed through the first-ever impeachment resolution against a sitting Cabinet secretary, charging Mayorkas with refusing to enforce border laws and breaching the public trust.

The impeachment won’t go anywhere in the Democratic-led Senate, where even GOP senators have declared the resolution “dead on arrival” and a political stunt.

Greene, who owned a Crossfit studio and worked in her family construction business before seeking office, said her experience makes her far better suited for the job. Homeland Security oversees not only the nation’s border security, but also counterterrorism, cybersecurity, national emergency response, and the U.S. Secret Service.

“Coming from a background in an executive position, I feel very strong about being capable for that role,” she said.
