Trump picks new Secret Service director

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has picked a career Secret Service official, James Murray, to lead the agency. He’ll replace Randolph “Tex” Alles.

That’s according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who says Murray will assume the role next month.

Three administration officials said earlier Monday that Alles’ departure stems from a personality conflict within the agency. Sanders says Alles will be “leaving shortly.”

Sanders says Alles “has done a great job at the agency over the last two years,” and that Trump is thankful for his service.
