Trump names Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as national security advisor
President Donald Trump has announced that Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster will be the new national security advisor.
McMaster replaces Michael Flynn, who resigned one week following reports that he discussed sanctions on Russia with the country’s ambassador to the US.
Trump called McMaster “a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience” as he made the announcement Monday afternoon at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
Trump also named Keith Kellogg, who had been the acting national security adviser, as the National Security Council’s chief of staff.
