After the short tenure of Michael Flynn as President Trump’s national security adviser, many liberal news anchors were saying how dangerous it was not to have the position filled. Trump silenced that criticism by announcing Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as his new national security adviser. Guess the liberal news people will have to find something else to complain about.
President Trump on Monday named Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as his new national security adviser, replacing the ousted Michael Flynn — a move meant to help put the White House on firmer footing after missteps on multiple fronts.
Trump called McMaster “a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience” while briefly introducing him to reporters at the president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida before returning to Washington.
In tapping McMaster, Trump turned to a widely respected and fiercely outspoken military strategist who was recognized for his battlefield leadership during both the Persian Gulf War and the Iraq War.
But unlike many officers, McMaster has spent virtually no time at the Pentagon or in Washington, which could prove a challenge in his new role.
