He said Pete Gaynor, who ran the Federal Emergency Management Agency, would become the acting homeland security secretary. Last week, Wolf asked Trump and all elected officials to “strongly condemn the violence” that took place at the Capitol. Wolf said he has condemned violence on both sides of the political aisle, specifically directed at law enforcement.
