Trump plans to name Florida official as homeland security adviser

U.S. President Donald Trump is planning to name a Florida official in charge of preparing the state for the effects of climate change as his homeland security advise.

Julia Nesheiwat, who holds the title of Florida’s chief resilience officer, will replace Coast Guard Rear Adm. Peter Brown, who held the position for about six months.

The position was also previously held by Doug Fears and Tom Bossert.

In her new role, Nesheiwat will work to protect the US from terrorist threats, strengthen cyberdefenses and respond to natural disasters.
