Trump appoints first-ever female Border Patrol chief

One of the constant labels Democrats have tried to stick on President Donald Trump is “sexist.”

But he took another step to prove them wrong recently when he named Carla Provost as the top dog for the U.S. Border Patrol, the first woman to have ever held that position.

Well-Deserved Promotion

Anyone thinking this promotion is just window dressing for Trump is dishonoring the accomplishments of Provost.

Her career started more than two decades ago in Douglas, AZ.

Provost quickly proved herself a capable employee, and was promoted to Supervisory Border Patrol Agent only three years later.

In 2001, Provost was upped again, this time to Field Operations Supervisor.

Provost would then transfer to the Yuma Sector (Arizona) in 2006, where she was promoted to Assistant Chief Patrol Agent.

In 2011, Provost received another promotion, this time to Deputy Chief Patrol Agent in El Paso, TX.

Just two years later, Provost was named the Chief Patrol Agent of El Centro (California) Sector.

Over the next four years, Provost would receive several more promotions leading her to her current position.

Her climb through the ranks was not an easy one, either.

As Provost herself noted, the department is dominated by men, making it very hard for a woman to climb through the ranks.

However, Provost says she has seen a major influx of women in recent years, and she thinks women are being promoted more often within the agency.

False Narrative

While the media continues to hammer Trump as a sexist, it is clear they are doing nothing more than twisting the facts.

Trump has five women in very high-ranking positions within his administration.

That does not include the likes of Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, either.

He has proven time and time again that he looks for the best person to fit the position, regardless of sex, race, creed, or color.
