National Security Advisor to Exit Report Denied by Trump

NBC News: McMaster To Leave White House As Soon As Next Month

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sought on Friday to dispel reports that national security adviser H.R. McMaster could be replaced as soon as this month.

The ABC News report questioned if there were concerns about conflict of interest over Kushner holding White House meetings with those who loaned his businesses money, Sanders merely responded that she "would refer you to the statement that was put out by his attorney". "There are no personnel announcements at this time", spokesman Raj Shah said.

Meanwhile, Ford Motor Company Vice President Stephen Biegun is reportedly regarded as a leading candidate to succeed McMaster.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who has always been the subject of rumors about his ouster, is in real jeopardy of losing his job, sources tell CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett.

Most recently, Trump publicly disputed his advisor's appraisal of Russia's interference in the 2016 election after McMaster called it "incontrovertible". Bolton has maintained what some have described as a positive personal relationship with President Donald Trump since the election but his hawkish views on issues like North Korea have made him a controversial pick to join the administration.

Trump willing to talk to North
Kim Jong-un's sister Kim Yo Jong was at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea earlier this month . Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has "reluctantly" accepted Yun's decision, Nauert said.

The net result is one of the weaker National Security Councils in recent memory - a critical part of the White House that has struggled at times to corral powerful personalities in the Pentagon and State Department and advance the president's often ill-defined foreign policy agenda.

As for talk of a White House in upheaval, Sanders pointed out the tax cuts passed late past year: "If they want to call it chaos, fine, but we call it success and productivity and we're going to keep plugging along".

CNN reported last week, citing a half dozen unnamed administration and defense officials, that McMaster was considering options to return to the military.

However, sources tell Garrett that the tension regarding McMaster is real, and that an exit strategy may now be in the works.

Sources with knowledge of McMaster's standing in the White House have repeatedly said that he has been on thin ice for months.
