White House Preps for HR McMaster's Departure

H.R. Mc Master reportedly next to leave White House

The White House is pushing back against an NBC report that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster could be eyeing the exits.

Defense officials would not speculate on what job McMaster could take in the Army, but two possible options are taking over for Gen. Vincent Brooks at U.S. Forces Korea or becoming the first commander of the new U.S. Army Future's Command, which will focus on modernizing the force. "There are no personnel announcements at this time", spokesman Raj Shah said.

Despite touting his business acumen at running companies, President Donald Trump's West Wing has seen unprecedented staff turnover.

News and others reported the story on Thursday, citing multiple sources.

"He still has confidence in General McMaster", Sanders said during a briefing.

Since then, McMaster has publicly clashed with President Trump on the Russian Federation investigation and his relationship with the president has reportedly gotten tense.

NBC claimed Stephen Biegun, a current Ford executive with national security experience from the George W. Bush administration, is a top contender to replace McMaster.

Vice president for worldwide government affairs at Ford Motors and a former senior staff member to then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice in the George W. Bush administration. While chatter of McMaster's departure has persisted for months, there now appears to be a scaled-up effort to locate a replacement.

President Trump extolled the virtues of McMaster in a White House statement after nominating him to the senior aide position.

After taking over former national security advisor Mike Flynn's role-who was charged by the FBI for lying to federal agents past year during Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation-McMaster sparred with Trump over national security rhetoric.

Mr McMaster's comment sparked a Twitter response from the President.

McMaster replaced Michael Flynn, who resigned after 24 days in office, over revelations that he lied about his contacts with Russian officials. Four senior administration officials told Reuters on the condition of anonymity that both Kelly and McMaster might resign at any time.
