"I share the President’s goal of securing the border. I will continue to support all efforts to address the humanitarian and security crisis on the border," Nielsen said.

Nielsen submitted her resignation to President Trump at the White House on Sunday afternoon. Trump announced her resignation on Twitter.

During an interview with Fox News Monday morning, Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley slammed the media's focus on the palace intrigue surrounding Nielsen's departure.

“I do find it kind of interesting that the media is so focused on what happened behind the scenes with the resignation of Secretary Nielsen instead of worrying about what’s actually happening at the border. We have a crisis down there, an emergency and the media refuses to focus on that but instead wants to talk about palace intrigue,” Gidley said. "We’ve got to address what's going on at the border. We were down there. It was amazing to look into the faces of those affected by this crisis directly, hear their stories, their heartbreak of assaults and deaths not to mention the fact that drugs that are pouring across the border. President Trump predicted this, he said this would happen.”
