View on Storyboard not loading when custom view controller class is called

IOS project using swift
On my story board I have a launch screen that is the entry point. Now I want another view controller, I drag a view controller onto the storyboard. I create a cocoa touch class that is a subclass of UIViewController, naming it DTViewController. On storyboard, I select my new view using the left most icon on the top of the view and go to custom class. I select DTViewController as my custom class.  To stop warnings about my view being unreachable I check "Use StoryboardID" and enter MyDeskTop as the Storyboard ID. I drag a label onto the new view.

I have the following code in AppController.swift
private func handleAppState(){
if let user = Aut.auth().currentUser{
let vc = DTViewController()
rootViewController = NavigationController(vc)
} else {
rootViewController = LoginViewController()
}
}

Open in new window


When I run the app the splash screen appears and then the DTViewController appears. The problem is it's not picking up on the View in the Storyboard, just the DTViewController class. My evidence is the label doesn't show up but if I change the background color in code in DTViewController the change shows.

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks!
