    Trump Taps Retired General for Homeland Security: Sources

    President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, whose last command included oversight of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, to run the Department of Homeland Security, people close to the transition team said Wednesday.

    Kelly, who joined the Marine Corps in 1970, retired earlier this year, wrapping up a final, three-year post as head of U.S. Southern Command, which spanned some of the more fractious debate over the Obama administration's ultimately failed pledge to close Guantanamo.

    He served three tours in Iraq, and holds the somber distinction of being the most senior military officer to lose a child in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan. His son, Marine 2nd Lt. Robert Kelly was killed in November, 2010, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

    Donald Trump Is Time's 2016 Person of the Year

    Donald Trump, who was elected the 45th president of the United States after a raucous and unprecedented campaign, is Time's 2016 Person of the Year.

    The magazine announced its pick on NBC's "Today" Wednesday morning.

    The Manhattan real estate mogul went from fiery underdog to win the White House over Democrat Hillary Clinton. Trump won 306 electoral votes, easily enough to make him president when the electors meet on Dec. 19. Clinton won the popular vote.

    "It's a great honor, it means a lot," Trump said in a phone interview on "Today." "Especially me growing up, reading Time magazine, it's a very important magazine. I've been lucky enough to be on the cover many times this year and last year."
