Trump Announces Mike Flynn’s Replacement

President Trump has announced that Amry Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster will takeover as national security advisor. McMaster, 54, is a brilliant military strategist, graduated from West Point in 1984 and has been serving in the Army ever since. He will be replacing retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn who resigned due to a failure in disclosing his communications with the Russian ambassador. McMaster has a wide range of support from seated politicians and has been named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine, calling him “the architect of the future U.S. Army.”

The Washington Examiner reports, “Making the announcement from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Trump also revealed that retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg will remain as the chief of staff for the National Security Council.

“That combination is something very, very special,” Trump said of McMaster and Kellogg, who has been acting national security adviser since Flynn’s departure.

McMaster “is a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience, and I have read a lot over the last two days — he is highly respected in the military and we’re very honored to have him,” Trump told reporters.

Trump made the announcement before reporters while seated between Kellogg and McMaster on a couch at the estate.”
