President Donald Trump’s pick to become “border czar” was surprised to be name-checked by the president Friday, according to a person familiar with the situation.
During a lengthy phone interview on “Fox & Friends,” Trump said he will bring back former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan for a new border role.
The public attention caught Homan off-guard, and it's not yet clear he’ll take the job, the person said.
“Tom Homan’s coming back,” Trump said Friday. “He’s going to be very much involved with the border.”
