It has been reported recently that National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is opposing “everything” President Trump wants to do.
McMaster is also allowing former NSA chief Susan Rice to continue receiving classified documents even after knowing she unmasked several Trump associates.
Needless to say, many conservatives aren’t thrilled with McMaster at the moment.
Here are Trump’s thoughts…
President Trump defended Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, his embattled national security adviser, on Friday in the face of a full-bore campaign by the nationalist wing of his political coalition accusing him of undermining the president’s agenda and calling for his dismissal.
General McMaster has angered the political right by pushing out several conservatives on the national security staff and cautioning against ripping up the nuclear agreement with Iran negotiated by President Barack Obama without a strategy for what comes next. His future has been in doubt amid speculation that Mr. Trump might send him to Afghanistan.
But after two days of unrelenting attacks on General McMaster by conservative activists and news sites, complete with the Twitter hashtag #FireMcMaster, the president weighed in to quash such talk. “General McMaster and I are working very well together,” he said in a statement emailed to The New York Times. “He is a good man and very pro-Israel. I am grateful for the work he continues to do serving our country.”
It would seem for now that McMaster has job security.
There have been talks of H.R. being replaced at the NSA by current CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
What are your thoughts on this situation?
Do you want to see Trump keep McMaster around a little while longer?
