Trump Changes Mind About ICE Director Nominee Ron Vitiello

President Donald Trump  has changed his mind about whom he's nominating to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.  He told reporters Friday that he's withdrawing the nomination of Ron Vitiello to head up the agency.  "We're going in a little different direction.

Ron's a good man, but we're going in a tougher direction," the president said.  It's not clear what President Trump meant by a "tougher direction." But so far, Vitiello's  confirmation process  hasn't been easy.  In November , lawmakers delayed a panel vote on the nominee in response to "serious issues" raised by ICE unions,   which claimed that Vitiello lacked the judgment needed to lead ICE.  And Vitiello has been criticized for past  social media posts , including one comparing then-presidential candidate Donald Trump to Dennis the Menace.

Vitiello's been leading ICE in an acting capacity since last year.

He's previously served as deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection and as Border Patrol chief.  President Trump hasn't announced whom he now plans to nominate for the position.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
